The NGO, has been ever alert in espousing the cause of Public Interest Litigation (C.W.P. No. 2484 /1997) and public welfare and earned the encomium of judiciary; to writ the Hon’ble High of Delhi, in the Public Interest Ligation relating to Chavan Rishi Apartments-C.W.P. No. 2484 /1997:

“The writ Petitioners have done a commendable job by bringing to the notice of the Court the issues focussed. We record our deep appreciation for them for canvassing the cause.”

9.In that case the land reserved for maintaining green had been encroached upon unauthorisedly by builders in connivance with the Government Agencies – DDA, MCD, Revenue Officials, and the builders constructed residential flats thereon. The Hon’ble High Court was pleased to observe, “Public interest demands strict action in such matter in order to protect public land and clean environment. Therefore, we have no hesitation in our mind in directing for dismantling and demolition of the entire construction made on the aforesaid land and the entire land should be restored to its original condition which we hereby order.” The Hon’ble High Court directed the DDA to maintain the said area as ‘green’ in terms of the notification issued by the Government and that the restoration of the greenery should be completed within a period of 12 months. The builder moved the Hon’ble Court seeking Special Leave to appeal which was dismissed, the High Court’s judgment and order becoming final and conclusive. On the land now stands a beautiful park dedicated to “NYAY”.
