New Delhi: The city government Thursday told the Delhi High Court that in nine months, it will shift the DTC Millennium Bus Depot, built on the Yamuna river bed ahead of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, to another location.
Sep 13, 2012, a division bench had allowed the state government to make the depot on the Yamuna bank a permanent structure provided the Master Plan of Delhi 2021 was amended within six months to alter the land use and bring it in conformity with the present use. Else, the depot would have to be relocated, it had ruled.
Filing the contempt plea, Arya said the clearance for the bus depot was given by the Lt. Governor for construction of a temporary structure to be demolished after conclusion of the 2010 Commonwealth Games as the same was being used for buses ferrying the athletes.
But, even after the division bench order, the government has not complied with the order, said the petitioner.
