Sector 39 fruit and vegetable market
HC seeks details from Admn
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 12
The Punjab and Haryana High Court asked the Chandigarh Administration to provide the details of effective steps initiated after the approval of plan for the Sector 39 fruit and vegetable market.

The directions by the special Division Bench of Justice Surya Kant and Justice Ajay Tewari to the Administration to furnish the details came during the hearing of a suo motu case. The directions were issued after the Division Bench was told that the plan was approved in August.

The Administration had earlier informed the Bench that the UT Administration was in process of setting up a fruit and vegetable market in Sector 39.

The High Court, on a previous date, had directed the Adviser to the Administrator, to immediately convene a meeting for considering the feasibility of setting up another vegetable market in the city.

The Bench had also directed Chandigarh Administration and the chairman of the market committee to look into the mess existing in the Sector-26 grain market. The High Court had then directed the UT Administration to respond to the photographs on encroachments and to make clear its stand on the new vegetable and fruit market in Sector 39.

The UT Administration, during the course of hearing, had informed the Bench that a meeting was convened by the UT adviser on April 26 last year to discuss the issues; and decision of setting up a second grain, fruit and vegetable market in Sector 39 was taken.

A site visit was also done by the UT adviser, along with the home secretary and chief architect at Sector 26 grain market and the proposed site in Sector 39. Appearing before the Bench, advocate-cum-amicus curiae Divya Sharma had insisted that Sector-26 market was in a bad shape. It was tough to walk through the place also because of handcart and other vendors. She said the market committee was illegally allowing handcart vendors. If vendors are regularised, the market committee’s business will stop, she added.

The High Court on a previous date of hearing had asked the Chandigarh Administration to frame a policy against encroachments in Sector 26 grain market. The Division Bench of Justice Surya Kant and Justice Ajay Tewari had also directed the UT deputy commissioner Mohammed Shayin to proceed against illegal encroachments in accordance with law.



traffic chaos, unplanned development at zirakpur
High Court rap for civic body, Punjab govt, GMADA, NHAI

Chandigarh, September 12
The Punjab and Haryana High Court has pulled up the Punjab government, Zirakpur municipal council, Greater Mohali Area Development Authority and National Highway Authority of India for unplanned urban development in the area.

Justice Rajive Bhalla asserted the authorities were being indifferent towards the plight of the travelling public. Blaming them for “bickering among themselves on petty questions of jurisdiction”, Justice Bhalla called for the holding of a joint meeting for resolving daily traffic issues. The scathing observations came during the hearing of the traffic regulation and road safety case after the minutes of a meeting held on August 31 were placed before the Bench.

Taking on record the assertion, Justice Bhalla noted: “A perusal of the minutes of the meeting reveals that all parties were evading responsibility for the mess created beneath the Zirakpur fly-over.”

“The Zirakpur MC, GMADA, NHAI and the State of Punjab are responsible for this unplanned urban development as licences are granted without existence of access to roads and highways; and, therefore, it falls to these authorities to alleviate the misery of the travelling public.”

Before parting with the orders, Justice Bhalla directed the Secretary, Public Welfare Department, Punjab; GMADA Secretary Housing and Urban Development; the Chief Administrator and the Secretary Urban Development to hold a meeting within 15 days and find a solution “so that the general public is not troubled with daily traffic”.

The High Court, on a previous date of hearing, had asked Punjab to make clear its stand on extending flyover at Zirakpur towards the Patiala side. Justice Bhalla had asserted: “The flyover constructed at Zirakpur was apparently planned before the unplanned urban explosion in Zirakpur and Dera Bassi, particularly on part of the highway going towards Patiala, causing traffic jams.”

He had directed the NHAI to look into the matter and ensure smooth flow of traffic and file an affidavit before the court, whether it would be necessary to extend the flyover, or suggest another solution.



Jet Airways told to pay Rs 25,000

Chandigarh, September 12
Jet Airways has been directed to pay Rs 25,000 compensation for inconvenience caused to a complainant travelling from Indore to Chandigarh via New Delhi. The complainant was forced to travel by train from Delhi to Chandigarh, as his previous flight was behind schedule by three hours and his flight from New Delhi to Chandigarh had already departed.

The District Consumer Forum also directed the airline to pay Rs 5,000 as the cost of litigation.

The complainant, Kishore Chand Rana, and his wife, Veena Kumari, had booked airline tickets of the opposite party from Indore to New Delhi and further from New Delhi to Chandigarh.

The booking was confirmed and a sum of Rs 18,620 had been charged. The arrival time of the flight from Indore to New Delhi was 9.45 am, but due to delay, it reached Delhi at 12.30 pm.

As the flight departure of Delhi to Chandigarh was 11.05 am, the complainants approached the baggage delivery counter and asked for a change of flight which was to depart at 1pm.

The counter assistant issued new boarding passes to the complainants for the same flight, which was now departing at 2 pm instead of 11.05 am from New Delhi. The employee sitting at the counter said that this flight had already departed.

The complainants then requested the officials to change the flight, but after waiting for over one hour, they were told that no seat was available. Eventually, the complainants had to return to Chandigarh by Shatabadi.

The opposite party said the both flights from Indore and Delhi were delayed due to fog. So the New Delhi-Chandigarh flight, scheduled to depart at 11.05 am, departed at 2pm, but the complainants reported late. — TNS
