The Central Vista Project is the center’s ambitious redevelopment plan
The decision of the Delhi High Court, which refused to put a stay on the Central Vista Project, has been challenged in the Supreme Court. The High Court, in its decision on May 31, refused to stay the Central Vista project due to Corona, and imposed a fine of one lakh rupees on the petitioner.
In the appeal filed by the petitioners Anya Malhotra and Sohail Hashmi, objection has been raised to the fine of one lakh rupees.
