Delhi High Court dismissed a plea seeking direction to suspend all construction activity of the Central Vista Avenue Redevelopment Project in view of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The court imposed Rs 1 lakh fine on petitioners and said that it is a "motivated plea, not a PIL".

The High Court while refusing to stay construction work said that as the workers are staying on-site, no question of suspending the construction work arises.

"The concerned DDMA order in question nowhere prohibits construction work," said the Delhi High Court.
