Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today quashed two Public Interest Litigations (PILs) that had challenged the State Government’s proposed Cuttack Netaji Bus Terminal (CNBT) project at Khan Nagar in the city.
The two PILs were filed in the High Court seeking relocation of the project site while another PIL was filed challenging the inclusion of the Kali temple land in the project. Hearing the three PILs, the High Court today rejected the two PILs seeking relocation and posted the PIL related to the Kali temple land for next hearing on May 17.
The High Court had earlier directed the administration to maintain status quo of all movable and immovable properties of the Kali temple.
Notably, the bus terminal is proposed to be developed on around 12 acres of land at Khan Nagar here at a cost of Rs 65 crore.
