The Delhi High Court has restrained the Municipal Corporation of Delhi from felling trees in Moradabad Pahari area -- one of the 'green belts' in south-west Delhi. The petition which was filed by the Indian Council for Legal Aid and Advice objected to the cutting of trees in the area to construct a complex. The court gave the judgement in response to an affidavit filed by Director (horticulture) Delhi Development Authority (DDA) stating that the land under the Moradabad Pahari owned by the DDA had been declared a protected forest area under the Indian Forest Act.
