High Court: Submit KP growth program, run chhatri’s structural audit: High Court | Nagpur News


NAGPUR: Expressing disappointment over the pitiable state of Kasturchand Park, the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court on Monday asked all respondents to submit a comprehensive development plan of this historical place.
A division bench comprising justices Ravi Deshpande and Pushpa Ganidewala advised them to even document structural audit record of chhatri (dome) and other adjacent structures prior to the next hearing. )
Amicus curiae Shreerang Bhandarkar has been requested to develop ideas on how the floor surface might be levelled to ensure sporting actions could be resumed there. The amicus had previously indicated three-layer levelling, such as at cricket stadiums.
The directives arrived while hearing a suo motu PIL (No 45/2017) regarding encroachments and fail of this historical location, according to media reports.
Following their place inspection on Saturday, the judges discovered”a very sorry state of affairs”.
“There’s a entire variance between what’s set on record before us by means of different affidavits and the true state of earth. We, therefore, say that we will have repeated visits to determine compliance with the directives provided by this court,” they said, adding that they’d prepare a comprehensive inspection report shortly.
Seeing the legacy arrangement is in a really poor shape, they stated, they brought these facts to the notice of collector Ravindra Thakre, Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) commissioner Radhakrishnan B, and architect Ashok Mokha, who is also an NMC heritage committee member. We guided them to shoot out photos of present condition and set on document structural audit of the legacy Grade-I monument,” they stated.
Defending their place inspection trip, the judges explained that if they had not seen, people attention in actual sense couldn’t have been attained. “We understood the significance of location review. We could observe there sooner was real filth on the floor. But following the departure of the previous sequence, half-hearted efforts were produced for levelling it,” they added.
Pointing out the floor is totally irregular, the judges stated it couldn’t be used as a playground, at least to the present. “We are not blaming anybody, but we needed the glory of legacy Grade-I monument to be revived. For the purpose, concerted efforts are required. A definite strategy has to be chalked out and therefore, certain directions will need to be issued,” they said.
