With the Supreme Court having stayed the amendments it had proposed to Master Plan for Delhi 2021 on Tuesday, Delhi Development Authority got cracking on an affidavit to be submitted in the court. According to sources, top DDA officials are going to meet Union housing and urban affairs minister Hardeep Singh Puri to discuss the issue. “The minister has said that whatever amendments we propose will be brought before the honourable court and we are in the process of submitting an affidavit,” DDA vice-chairman Udai Pratap Singh told TOI. A DDA official said that the affidavit would have a response to the Supreme Court’s query on whether DDA had undertaken a study of the environmental impact of the proposed amendments to allow commercial activities in residential and non-commercial areas.
