Ranchi: It hurts to see the condition of NH-33: High Court

Accidents happen on the day of NH. People are dying. The court expresses condolences on this

21st February, 2020

Public interest litigation was filed in the Jharkhand High Court on Thursday with automatic cognizance of the pathetic condition of the Ranchi-Jamshedpur National Highway (NH-33) and four laning work. A division bench of Justice Aparesh Kumar Singh and Justice Anil Kumar Chaudhary made oral comments while hearing the case. The bench said that Ranchi-Jamshedpur is NH public property. Seeing the condition of the road, the court hurts.

Accidents happen on the day of NH. People are dying. The court expresses condolences on this. Even after several years, the four-laning work of NH has not yet been completed. This road project is for the public, but the public is suffering a lot of inconveniences.

The bench directed NHAI to expedite the construction work of phase-three and phase-four. The bench, while hearing a discharge petition filed against former Censor Company Ranchi Expressway Ltd MD K Srinivasa Rao for stopping the contempt proceedings, imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh.

Asked to deposit the amount of the fine with Jhalsa within four weeks. The bench, after hearing the pleas of Ranchi Expressway, acquitted its MD from contempt proceedings. The bench fixed March 25 for the next hearing of the case.

Instructions for submitting property details

The bench had directed to furnish details of assets of MD, Director, etc. of Ranchi Expressway Way but the order was not complied with. 50.23% of the work is being completed by the company.

Later, NHAI withdrew work from Ranchi Expressway and started four laning of NH-33 in four phases from afresh. Amicus curiae advocate Ashutosh Anand advocated. It is noteworthy that taking the pathetic condition of Ranchi-Jamshedpur NH-33 seriously, the Jharkhand High Court turned it into a PIL.
