Central nod must to build in prohibition zone

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: State government will not be exempted from the ban on construction within 100 metres of a centrally protected monument, despite Tuesday’s amendment to this effect in the Ancient Monuments and Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act.

Addendum in the amended Act effectively means that projects close to ASI monuments in Delhi that are undertaken by state PWD, civic agencies or other departments of the state government, including parking lots and flyovers, will not take off without the Centre’s consent. Officials cited examples like the construction of a parallel bridge next to Shivaji Bridge on the Panchganga near the heritage site of Brahmapuri in Kohlapur to underline why the Act needed to be amended.
