  • New Delhi: The Supreme Court has asked the Centre to take over possession and secure the controversial Adarsh society building in Mumbai.

    The handing over of possession has to be done on or before 5th of next month. The process will be supervised by Registrar General of Bombay High Court or by his nominee Registrar.

    Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar told the apex court that the Centre will secure the building and there will be no demolition. The hearing in the case has now been postponed to August 5.

    The Adarsh Housing Society had moved Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court verdict in April this year directing demolition of the society.

    The society members had termed the demolition order passed by the Ministry of Environment and Forests in 2011 as ‘malafide’, maintaining they had all clearances.
