Supreme Court issues notice in appeal challenging permission given for Lavasa Lake City project

In its judgment, the High Court had noted that the allegations levelled in the petition against Sharad Pawar and Supriya Sule have not been rebutted by them and would, therefore, have to be assumed as correct.

However, the Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice GS Kulkarni deemed it fit to have a “judicial hands-off” approach since one of the objections to the plea was the delay in approaching the Court.

“If at all interference were an option, in our considered opinion, the harm that interference at this belated stage would cause is likely to far out-weigh the benefit that could, if at all, accrue to the farmers on whose behalf the petitioner has instituted this writ petition,” the Court said.

The High Court also noted that by now, farmers would have lost rights in respect of their properties and developed third party interests. Additionally, the lands may not be conducive for farming.
