ESIC moves Gujarat HC against town planning scheme, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate

September 13, 2023

AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat high court on Tuesday issued notice to concerned state government authorities following an objection to a town planning scheme that has been finalized by them.

The court sought their explanation after the central government’s Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) claimed that the state government finalized TP Scheme 99 of Naroda-Chiloda, and acquired its land without consultation during Covid period when ESIC was busy dealing with pandemic-related cases.

ESIC’s medical superintendent filed a petition through advocate Sachin Vasavada stating that the central government has acquired a land parcel in Naroda to construct a hospital there.

However, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) and the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) devised a TP scheme and reserved ESIC’s 11,009 sq m land for a medical college, the petition states. The TP scheme was finalized on December 16, 2020, without ESIC being asked for its opinion and particularly when it was busy with medical facilities for citizens.

The central government body contended that the plan to construct a hospital on the plot should be given priority over the plan to build a medical college.

ESIC has sought to know whether state government authorities can acquire the land from the central government body and whether it is permissible for them to finalize a TP scheme during a situation like Covid when ESIC was busy with saving lives of citizens.

The court has sought a reply from the state authorities on the issue and posted further hearing of the matter on November 2.
