Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Satish Kumar Vs Govt. of NCT of Delhi dated 06/08/2019 regarding encroachment on government land at Khasra No. 216-217-964/2018, revenue estate of village Haiderpur, Delhi. Through its order of December 2018, the Tribunal had sought a report from the DDA. The DDA said that the area under the North MCD and the MCD was asked to submit a factual and action taken report. The affidavit filed by the North MCD states that as the encroachment was on the government land and not on the North MCD land, the encroachment removal action has to be taken by the "land owning agency."

In view of the divergent stand taken by the statutory authorities, the NGT directed the Chief Secretary, Delhi to look into the matter and determine as to which agency has to take action for the removal of encroachment from the land.
