The Supreme Court today said that there is no stay on the construction of the Mumbai Metro car shed at Aarey Colony, clarifying that its status quo order is applicable only on felling of trees there. The top court asked the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to submit a report on the number of trees cut, afforestation and trans-plantation being carried out in lieu of felling of trees at Mumbai's prominent green-lung. 

A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta was assured by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the BMC, that no further felling of trees is being done in Aarey colony and complete status quo is being maintained following the apex court's last order.

A counsel, appearing for the PIL petitioners seeking a stay on felling of trees, alleged that in the garb of clearing of trees from the area, the construction work for the project is going on. The top court asked the BMC to submit a status report on the activities proposed in the Aarey forest area.


On October 7, the top court had restrained authorities from cutting any more trees in Mumbai's Aarey to set up the Metro car shed.
