The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation on Wednesday demolished nearly 69 settlements in Motera area, nearly a month after they were surveyed as part of a social impact assessment for the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar Metro Rail. While Ahmedabad-based trade union Majur Adhikar Manch claimed in a release that there was no notice issued before the demolition, AMC’s deputy estate officer of west zone Chaitanya Shah said that the demolition was in “due process of law”. “We had given them notice for eviction in February 2020, to which they had responded and we had then passed a final order. This order was challenged by them (slum dwellers) before the Gujarat High Court. The Gujarat HC had dismissed their petition and ruled in favour of AMC. We sought the demolition because this was illegal encroachment as per our town planning scheme.”
