NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Thurs­day slapped a fine of Rs one lakh on the South Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (SDMC) for its fail­ure to re­spond on time to a re­port by the mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee on seal­ing about al­leged vi­o­la­tion of Mas­ter Plan of Delhi2021 and build­ing byelaws in mo­tels and farm houses.

A bench headed by Jus­tice Madan B Lokur also chided the NDMC chair­man for not co­op­er­at­ing with the mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee, set up by the apex court.

It noted that if any in­con­ve­nience is caused to the mon­i­tor­ing com­mit­tee, it "is in­di­rectly caus­ing in­con­ve­nience to this court" and asked the chair­man of the New Delhi Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil (NDMC) to ren­der all nec­es­sary as­sis­tance to the panel.
