WHAT THE HIGH COURT ORDER SAID
Rampant illegal constructions in the city, particularly Digha, received a huge jolt after the Bombay high court ordered in September 2015, the demolition of 99 illegal buildings, in Digha
Digha has over the years become a hub of illegal constructions. It is in this context that the high court, following a PIL has ordered demolition. The police have registered cases against 58 people so far.
Of the 99 illegal buildings to be demolished as per the HC order, 90 are on MIDC land and four on land belonging to Cidco.
