New Delhi [India], Mar. 23 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Thursday disposed off several petitions challenging the procedure for reservation of wards for reserved sections and women in the upcoming Delhi Municipal polls. Several pleas seeking to nullify the notification for delimitation of wards for the upcoming Delhi Municipal polls were already disposed off earlier on March 16. The High Court had earlier observed that why weren't objections raised earlier, when the following process was followed: Two different drafts pertaining to this notification were uploaded online at different points of time. Objections were invited, advertisements were given and recommendations were also received. After several meetings, demarcation was done. The final list was published after extensive discussion and deliberation in a transparent manner. The court had also observed that it would be improper to consider the petition after the issuance of the final notification, which was done on January 13. The election is scheduled to be held on April 23. (ANI)
