The Supreme Court on Friday lifted completely the ban on construction and demolition in Delhi-NCR after putting a stop on such activities for over three months.

Revoking its ban of November 4 last year, a Bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta concluded that the ban has served its purpose and there has been a significant improvement in air quality.

“The ban has been completely lifted,” confirmed senior advocate Aparajita Singh, an amicus curiae in the case. The ban had however been partially eased on December 9 and the court had allowed incomplete construction activities to resume during the daytime.
