On notifications issued by the Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) for the destruction of an unlicensed construction, the state minister of urban development has ordered the status quo.

This was stated by NIT in its response, which was submitted on August 23 in the public interest litigation (50/2022).

The state government purchased and owned the sites, but private individuals built the structures.

Through attorney Tushar Mandlekar, Dwarkapuri Coop Housing Society residents had submitted the PIL.

They claimed the two plots were purchased for the Inner Ring Road project.

The petitioners asked the government for guidelines on how to investigate NIT and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) personnel.

Notices were given to respondents Nos. 5 and 6 on June 4, 2018, according to NIT's response.

The plots were reportedly regularized after owners provided an indemnity bond and statement, according to NIT.
