The matter is listed for next hearing on October 21.

The tribunal was hearing a plea filed by city resident Jitender Dhir alleging that illegal construction was by being carried out by the Delhi Development Authority in the area recorded as green belt in Mayapuri.

The plea alleged that despite objection from the Deputy Conservator of Forest on December 3, 2015, the DDA was constructing a building in the area which is marked as green belt.

"This green belt area is around five acre forest area and declared protected under 1980 forests notification. DDA has started a project in the area making concrete structures, clearing land of foliage and trees," the plea said.
