Submission of the Respondent 

Special GP attached to AG P. Radhive gives information to the Court. The information is regarded as the veracity of the allegation. It needs some time to get instructions from the concerned departments. Later on, we will file a counter-affidavit.

Observation of the Court 

The High Court Division Bench comprising Justice A. Raja Shekar Reddy. Justice Bollam Vijaysen Reddy is also a part of the Bench.

The Bench showed dissatisfaction over the request. He said that it is not that every time the Court should give direction. The Government should be quick enough, at least in such matters. The Government should take immediate action in the matters of illegal construction. And then they should come back to the Court.

The Bench pointed out that by the time the authority gets instructions. Building construction will be completed, and more complications may arise. When a plea is filed, the Court has to pass the orders. And then the authority has to wait for that. When a serious allegation is made, the Government can take action. They can report to the Court that action has already been taken.

The green belt area huge multi-storied buildings are coming up. The Court cannot delay more. Buildings are constructed and allotted to the buyers. And it will lead to further complications.
