NEW DELHI: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) on Thursday informed the Delhi High Court that it had handed over three plots to the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) for relocating its Millennium bus depot that is currently on the Yamuna river bank.
Advocate Rajiv Bansal, appearing for DDA, submitted before justice VK Shali that plots of land at Narela, Rohini and Sarai Kale Khan has been handed over to the DTC and the transport department of Delhi government.
Bansal told the court that only one site at Karkari More in east Delhi is yet to be handed over and it will take almost six more months to hand over that site.
The DTC, however, said the DDA is going back on its promise to vacate the land in east Delhi by October 31.
Appearing for DTC, additional solicitor general Sanjay Jain and advocate Sumeet Pushkarna told the court that “now if the DDA will take six more months for Karkari More land, how can it fulfil the undertaking of vacating the millennium depot”.
Posting them atter for September 24, the court asked DTC to file its response on the status report filed by DDA. The high court also asked both the agencies to come out with a solution.
The DTC is on a deadline to relocate the Millennium bus depot, which was built on 50 acres of land, by October 2014.
