November 21, 2006 11:51 IST
The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted time till Wednesday to the monitoring committee on sealing to complete random checking of the premises of those traders and professionals who have given applications saying they have stopped misuse of residential areas for commercial purposes.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Y K Sabharwal posted the matter for hearing on November 23.
The bench will go through the report prepared by the three-member court panel on the matter on the next date of hearing.
Out of the nearly 25,000 traders who had earlier given undertakings stating they will voluntarily close their shops, about 18,305 have filed the fresh applications after closing down their establishments.
The court, on November 15, had said it would consider giving some relief to about 25,000 traders who have earlier submitted an affidavit to voluntarily close their shops if they filed fresh applications stating that they had stopped the misuse of residential premises.
The apex court had then asked the monitoring committee to conduct random checks at the premises of those who have given undertaking and file its report on or before November 20.
The panel had submitted its report to the court on Monday evening.
