The high court has refused to entertain a public interest litigation matter seeking a direction to the Delhi Tree Authority to hold quarterly meetings, noting that another bench is already monitoring the functionality of the authority.


Regarding the petitioner’s prayer to direct the tree authority to provide saplings or plants to every individual to plant those on their property, a bench of Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Mini Pushkarna said the suggestion should be considered by the authority, which should also take an appropriate decision.

“This court is of the view that as the single judge is already monitoring the functionality of the Delhi Tree Authority, it would not be appropriate to entertain the present public interest litigation,” the bench said and closed the proceedings in the petition.
