HC allows construction of Defence building near correctional home
Justice Debangshu Basak allowed construction of the building on a land belonging to the Defence Estates, which was stopped two years ago.
The Calcutta High Court today allowed construction of a building by the Defence Ministry, which had been stalled by the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) and the state government on security reasons as it was coming up next to the Alipore Correctional Home here.
Appearing for the ministry, Additional Solicitor General Kaushik Chanda told the court that the Government Building Act 1899 provides for exemption from the operation of
municipal building laws certain buildings and lands which are the property, or in the occupation of the Government and situated within the limits of a municipality.
