The Bombay High Court ordered flower vendors to refrain from making any type of construction or alteration without first obtaining permission from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, and it also ordered the demolition of stalls at the Dadar flower market in central Mumbai to be postponed (BMC).

One of the biggest wholesale markets in Mumbai is the Dadar flower market, which is nearby the railway station and has a multi-million-dollar annual revenue.

The bench of Justices RD Dhanuka and Kamal Khata stated that the court would determine whether or not the municipal corporation was authorised to begin the demolition process on the following date, and if so, under what legal provisions and whether or not any legal requirements were to be met.

The petitioners, who are the owners of several stalls who have been selling flowers for a long time, according to the petitioners, alleged that the municipal corporation illegally removed the shutters on their shops.

The Upendra Nagar Cooperative Society had complained to the authorities, and it was only then that they took steps to have the offending structures demolished, according to the municipal corporation.

The subject was set for further hearing on December 5 after the court heard arguments from both sides and ordered that the petitioners obtain a copy of the complaint they received.
