Restriction on building of Arabic-Persian University

Lucknow: Allahabad High Court’s Lucknow Bench has imposed a ban on building of Arabic-Persian University which is presently under construction in Lucknow because of non-availability of “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) from the ministry of environment.

The bench consisting of Justices Pradeep Kant and Ved Pal said in response to a petition filed by one Shatrughun Lal that building and construction work of the University cannot be undertaken without the grant of NOC by the said ministry. The petitioner had stated in his petition that the land on which the state (UP) government is building the Arabic-Persian University near IIM is green belt and is a reserved land.

Moreover, the petitioner said, the ministry of environment has also not given the NOC for building this University. The Court said that unless the NOC is obtained from the environment ministry, construction work cannot be undertaken.
