The Supreme Court will today hear the case involving the demolition of an under-construction multi-level parking lot near the historic Taj Mahal.

The apex court on October 24 ordered the demolition of the parking lot around Mughal mausoleum, Taj Mahal.

The top court noted that the parking lot could be an environmental hazard, a lawyer appearing for Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) said.

In August, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had directed the Uttar Pradesh government to demolish illegal restaurant constructed by a private party near the iconic monument.

The NGT had even urged the state government to encourage plantation around the iconic monument. (ANI)
