About 1500 bighas of Tughlaqabad fort land has been illegally occupied for years. The Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) ordered residents to vacate the site within 15 days by order of the Delhi High Court. Notices have been taped to about 1,200 homes built on the fort’s land in the past two days. Demolition work will start at the end of this month.

The Archaeological Survey of India was awarded 2661 bighas of Tughlaqabad Fort land from the Delhi Development Authority in 1195 for maintenance. But over the past 25 years, more than 50 percent of this land has been illegally occupied by humans. ASI Superintendent of Archaeology, Praveen Singh said that in 2001 a PIL was filed with the Supreme Court alleging illegal occupation of the fort’s land. The case remained in the cold store for years. But in 2016, the Supreme Court took note of this and referred the case to the Delhi High Court and ordered supervision.
