Hi everybody,
Does anybody l4.know about this meeting held at ASI regarding the 100m and
200m around protected monuments. The reason for calling the meeting was to
examine the relaxation possibilities to help people.

Can ASI do such a thing. There was ample opportunity during the Master Plan
2021 preparation. Why now?

Hi Sarabjit,
Am very much interested in the matter of "Mixed Land Use" in the

forthcoming

DMP. So please drop a line, so that I can receive mails from u directly.
MPISG concerns are too many and I cannot cope up with it.
Best,
Aruna Bhowmick.

Dear Gita,

Glad 2 know yr intervention is allowed.

This is tactically not a good petition to intervene in
and DMP issues will probably be sidelined. Anyway
intervenors are second class citizens in these
matters.

This so called PIL is going to meander its way through
media hawa and will keep spiking up around October-Feb
when nursery admissions are in the news. You will also
get liberal doses of TMA Pai foundation judgement
extracts (you can pick and choose your ratio
judgements)

A comparison of 294 versus balance 894 may be
meaningful.

A well chosen attack on the DSEAR will be useful and
will endear you to everyone in that PIL.

To further ingratiate yourself into the clique, you
may consider suggesting that its high time now that
"Land" should be under the GNCTD and that DDA has
outlived its purpose.

Insofar as my IT ACT displays of Objections and
Suggestions to DMP-2021 is concerned. Here's how it
should be done:-

I am sure that if TRAI could listen to me on this one
so will DDA - nothing like a good old section 409 IPC
Complaint to push these public servants in the right
direction.

Bye
Sarbajit

my intervention was allowed. despite mr agarwal
(social jurist) and ms ahlawat (gnctd counsel, also
in
the mpisg petitions) and mr sabharwal (counsel for
dda, also in the mpisg matters) making remarks
amounting to *resisting*. mr agarwal said I was
trying
to get the order of 20/01/04 modified (not accurate)
and DB had dismissed that (without clarifying not
me).
ms ahlawat told the court that I had told her I was
against free-seats. mr sabharwal submitted the
master
plan is irrelevant.

the much celebrated free-seats pil, being celebrated
in name of common school system and what not, is
down
to wanting to hound 294 schools as per list filed by
gnctd.

ms ahlawat submitted she has given copies of The
List
to the petitioner and to dda and others can take a
copy from her chamber, and that it was drawn up
jointly by dda and l&do and gnctd, and is of those
out
of 1140 school sites allotted by DDA or L&DO that
have
freeship condition in their leases (193 with and 101
without the quantum specified). about the other 846
school sites allotted by DDA, mr sabharwal submitted

they are nursery or primary school sites that
allotted
to mcd (which is ludicrous; most of those are the
ones
on which gnctd has issued illegal upgradation
permissions, as per dda affidavit of 26/10/04, with
reference to which mr sabarwal himself had
vehemently
urged that gnctd be directed to explain before order
of 27/10/04 was passed without that). counsel
appearing for the action committee for unaided
schools
(which had also filed an intervention application in
view of its petition pending before the single
judge,
in which mpisg has filed intervention and to whose
counsel and ms ahlawat I had given copy of that for
consideration of our lawful suggestions after being
asked to do so by J Gita Mittal on 16/05/05 after ms
ahalawat had submitted that the afternoon-school
idea
that action-committee had proposed to chief minister
had been rejected after the consideration urged in
court by mr gopal subramaniam, appearing for
action-committee on 05/05/05) mainly pressed for
consideration of the afternoon school option.

the officials (dda vc, education director and
someone
from L&DO) were present. contrary to the impression
conveyed by news reports about the hearing on
18/08/05, the court made it clear that they had been
called not for directions but about assisting the
court. meetings between authorities and schools,
with
mr agarwal and myself, were proposed by the bench
(but
I do not know if the order says that for me, mr
agarwal specifically asked for himself while the
order
was being dictated). mr madhukar gupta, who is
moving
on to be secretary fertilisers, made some
seminar-style remarks to the effect that dda looked
forward to norms being set by the court. the
official
from L&DO mercifully pointed out that besides the
294
schools other sites were also relevant, but the
lawyers started saying other things. (later I also
pointed out that the list of 294 was odd, but I was
out-shouted, with the remarks amounting to
*resisting*).

I was without lawyer today and did not follow some
of
the technicalities. since the counsel present did
not
seem very friendly, I asked the court master
afterwards for clarifications. he confirmed that my
intervention was allowed (meaning I will be allowed
to
make submissions at time of arguments before orders
are passed) and that I could join the proposed
meetings (which I dont expect to come to know about)
and that no date for next hearing was given and
might
be given after lunch (I did not wait since I expect
newspapers will report it tomorrow and the web will,
too, before next date of hearing).

I am planning to call a meeting of the petitioners
in
the mpisg matter on Sunday. Any suggestions will be
appreciated.

I have filed an application for intervention in
Social
Jurist free-seats PIL in which further directions
were
given on 18/08/05, with purpose of ensuring that
order
of 27/10/04 (in mpisg matters) is read with its
order
of 20/01/04.
http://plan.architexturez.net/site/mpisg/f/050823
My contention is that free-seats condition is an
instrumentality of DMP-2001 Neighbourhood School
Plan
(NSP itself being instrumentality for common

school

system as proposed by Kothari Commission). Order

of

20/01/04 did not contain directions for action
against
ubiquitous violation of free-seats condition by
schools but for GNCTD to, in effect, put in place
the
enabling NSP for its compliance. Order of 27/10/04
directs action against violations impeding NSP and
specifically notes also violations by GNCTD. As
such,
it complements Order of 20/01/04 and favours a
different approach for its compliance than the one
being pursued in its name since early 2004 and

being

urged again now.

I find resonance in Supreme Court remarks about
quota
in colleges. It has been asking for law to allow
quota
and political/ngo activists are criticising its
latest
verdict against quota for, I suppose, rudely
reminding
them the ball is still in their court. High Court
order of 20/01/04 had asked GNCTD to make Rules
(legislative task, to operationalise existing law)
for
integrating 25% EWS in schools, instead of which

it

issued a directive for 20% BPL quota that they

have

all been celebrating (and demanding in name of CSS
in
education Bill) and even after it has proved to be
illusory not asking for the Rules that never got
made.
And Attorney General and Additional Solicitor
General,
who were reportedly at pains to explain to a livid
Supreme Court, have both featured also in the

school

matters in Delhi.

The politics v/s law debate is very uninspiring.
