Noida News: Noida Authority CEO Ritu Maheshwari failed to get waiver from Supreme Court



Naida: Noida Authority CEO Ritu Maheshwari has received a heavy blow from the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court refused to give a speedy hearing on his petition. In fact, the CEO of Noida Authority had challenged the decision of the Allahabad High Court in the Supreme Court. Allahabad High Court had ordered a deduction of Rs 10,000 from the salary of Ritu Maheshwari, CEO of Greater Noida Authority, while hearing the contempt motion. The High Court had ordered compliance with this order by February 6. The petition for review was filed by the CEO by order of the High Court. Had appealed to Allahabad High Court to withdraw the order. When there was a setback from the High Court, the CEO of Noida Authority reached the Supreme Court. Again, they did not get immediate relief.

The Supreme Court has refused an early hearing on Ritu Maheshwari’s petition. On hearing Ritu Maheshwari’s motion, Chief Justice DY Chandrachud said we will hear on February 24 on a regular basis. The Allahabad High Court had ordered a deduction of Rs 10,000 from Ritu Maheshwari’s salary in the contempt case. Noida CEO and IAS officer Ritu Maheshwari was indicted by the Supreme Court in December after the Allahabad High Court overturned the non-releasable warrant against Maheshwari.

What is the problem?

The Allahabad High Court had convicted the CEO of the Greater Noida Development Authority for failing to comply with the High Court’s order within the prescribed time. Expressing its displeasure with the CEO’s affidavit, Court of Justice Piyush Aggarwal said the order was not being complied with. In fact, construction work was underway by Devsai Construction to develop the Sportshome project in Greater Noida West. In this case, he had asked the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority to update the construction plan.

After Devsai Construction dismissed the claim, the High Court was moved. The High Court has ordered a decision in the case by December. As no action was taken, Devsai Construction again appealed to the High Court. In this case, registering a contempt case against Ritu Maheshwari, an order was issued to deduct Rs 10,000 from his salary.
