The Supreme Court on Friday accepted the notifications issued by the Central government on September 7 and 15, allowing mixed use of residential areas for commercial purposes, and put on hold the shop sealing operations till October 31.
A bench headed by Justice Y K Sabharwal accepted the notifications in parts -- giving major relief to small traders but refusing to give any relief to A and B category traders operating from posh localities of the capital city like South Extension, Greater Kailash and Karol Bagh.
Small traders operating on over 2,000 roads notified by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, will also be exempted from sealing.
The court gave no relief to the traders who had filed their affidavit seeking a stay on the sealing proceedings but gave them the liberty to approach the monitoring committee set up by the apex court to re-examine their cases.
It said that the interim order was subject to the final disposal of the writ petition moved by the Delhi Pradesh Citizen Council challenging the government notifications
