The court of Delhi Financial Commissioner has issued a notice to the Congress directing its representatives to appear before it after a petition alleged that the party was constructing its headquarters on Kotla Road here without environmental clearances.
No immediate reaction was available from the Congress.
Vikrant Tongad, an environmental conservative, said he filed a plea seeking to set aside the DPCC's July 16, 2018 order that stated the under-construction office complex of the party fell below 20,000 square meters and did not require consent under the provisions of the Environment Impact Assessment Notification 2006.
"Notice is hereby given that the case cited as subject has been fixed for hearing on April 9 before the Financial Commissioner.
"You are, therefore, required to appear in person or through your authorised representatives on the date and time fixed for hearing. In default, the matter shall be heard and decided ex-parte," the notice read.
