NEW DELHI, MARCH 8. The Delhi High Court today directed the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) to frame guidelines for installing and manning of gates in colonies by Residents' Welfare Associations (RWAs) across the city.
Justice S. Ravindra Bhat issued the direction on a pending public interest litigation (PIL) by the Sarita Vihar RWA seeking a direction to MCD to formulate a policy to regulate and monitor the setting up of iron gates on the entry and exit points and manning them by private security personnel. They also sought a stay on removal of already installed gates.
At the last hearing, the High Court had directed the local body to come to the Court next time with a policy to regulate such gates in the colonies in consultation with the Delhi Police Commissioner.
However, the local body failed to comply with the order. Therefore, Justice Ravindra Bhat rejected its affidavit filed through its counsel Ashok Bhasin and asked the Corporation to take a fresh initiative to frame the policy.
The court further instructed the municipal body to take the opinion of RWAs and other parties concerned into consideration before framing the policy.
Mr. Justice Bhat later adjourned the matter for May 2 when Mr. Bhasin sought time to take instructions from the local body.
