Delhi HC disposes pleas seeking delimitation of wards for MCD polls

New Delhi [India], Mar. 16 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Thursday disposed off the pleas seeking to nullify the notification for delimitation of wards for the upcoming Delhi Municipal polls.

The High Court observed that the objections were not raised earlier even when the following process was followed:

- Two different drafts pertaining to this notification were uploaded online at different points of time.

- Objections were invited, advertisements were given and recommendations were also received. After several meetings, demarcation was done.

- The final list was published after extensive discussion and deliberation in a transparent manner, the court said.

The court also observed that it would be improper to consider the petition after the issuance of the final notification (which was done on January 13).

Several other petitions challenging the procedure for reservation of wards for reserved sections and women in the upcoming Delhi Municipal polls will continue to be heard tomorrow. (ANI)
