The order passed in response to intervention applications filed in this regard states,
In November last year, the Court had imposed a moratorium on all construction and demolition activities in light of the acute problem of air pollution that had engulfed the Delhi NCR region as well as its adjoining areas.
In December, however, the Court had partially lifted its ban and allowed construction activity to be started in Delhi NCR between 6 AM and 6 PM. The night time ban on such activities, however, remained.
On Friday, however, the Court directed the recall of its 2019 order, thereby allowing the resumption of construction activities in Delhi at any time of the day.
The orders were passed by a Special Bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta which has been hearing the case relating to the acute problem of air pollution in Delhi and North India.
