The Supreme Court stayed the Uttarakhand high court order of Haldwani eviction and asked for a workable arrangement to address the ‘land encroachment’ issue. The matter will be heard next on February 7.
The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed the planned eviction of the railways in the ‘encroached’ land in Uttarakhand’s Haldwani and said a workable arrangement has to be devised as 50,000 people can’t be uprooted overnight. In its order, the Supreme Court said the government will have to provide full rehabilitation of the people of the area. “In the meantime, there shall be a stay of the directions passed in the impugned order,” the Apex Court said barring any new construction or development on the land.
