The Punjab and Haryana High Court directed the state government to dissolve the Panchkula’s municipal body, for failing to discharge the duties.

In his order dated April 19, Justice Amit Rawal has directed the Haryana Government to invoke Section 400 of the Haryana Municipal Corporation Act, 1994, whereby powers and duties of a municipal body, when it fails to discharge these, are required to be transferred to the state government.

The HC bench observed that MC was not using funds for development and prevention of diseases and had failed to address to take measures for better health conditions of people.

The HC bench passed the order in a February petition filed by a Saketri village resident, Pradeep Singh, seeking relief from sewage flowing right opposite his house. 

The court issued notices to the Municipal Corporation, the district administration, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and also the Chandigarh MC and the UT Administration by widening the scope of the petition.
