Mumbai: The Bombay high court on Friday directed the Maharashtra government to resolve all issues obstructing the allotment and transfer of land for a state-run law university within four weeks.

A bench of Justice S.C. Dharmadhikari and P.D. Naik also directed the state government to file an affidavit listing the steps taken to resolve the issue and specify the land that will be allotted.

 

The bench was hearing a Public Interest Litigation on the ‘delay’ in allotment of land for the university. 

The PIL claimed that while the government announced in 2014 that it would allot a 50-acre plot for the varsity, it was yet to do so.

The state government told the high court on Friday that two plots in north Mumbai — one in Gorai and another in Goregaon — were under consideration.

However, while a part of the Gorai plot was given to the Airports Authority of India, the one in Goregaon faces constructions height restrictions, it said. It was in contact with the AAI to find a solution, the government said.
