West Bengal: Petition filed at Calcutta High Court seeking permission for Durga Puja in New Town

Like the previous year, this year also organisers filed a petition in Calcutta High Court seeking permission for Durga Puja. In the petition, it is alleged that KMDA(Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority) and HIDCO(The West Bengal Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation) are not giving permission to organise Durga Puja citing strange and invalid reasons.

Notably, last year, an organisation named ‘New Town Intellectuals’ approached Calcutta High Court and sought permission to perform Durga Puja at New Town Fair Ground. They challenged the decision of KMDA and HIDCO and got permission from the High Court. But, this year, they are denied the necessary permission. 

In the hearing of the petition, Justice Sabyasachi Bhattacharya wanted to know the reason behind the denial of the permission. A lawyer representing HIDCO, states that last year’s permission was an exception. If permission of Durga Puja is given in the mentioned spot, then traffic management will be hindered. 

In answer to this, a lawyer representing the organisation cited that there is a service road. Last year also, during the days of the Durga Puja, that specific road was opened for traffic. 

Hearing both parties, Justice Sabyasachi Bhattacharya reserved the judgement. He also sought reports from all the concerned parties.
