The Allahabad High Court today directed Uttar Pradesh’s Principal Secretary (Urban Development) to file a counter affidavit on a petition challenging constitution of the Noida Sports Trust.
A Division Bench comprising Justice Arun Tandon and Justice Umesh Chandra Tripathi passed the order on the petition of District Tennis Association of Noida, which has challenged constitution of the trust by the Noida Authority.
The petitioner organization has contended that being a local body, it had no power to constitute such a trust.
It has been further alleged that officials of the Noida Authority were made members of the trust “not in the name of their respective designation or post but in their individual names”.
The court fixed July 6 as the next date of hearing in the matter.
