The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday ordered that no fresh licences would be issued to builders in the National Capital Region, including Gurgaon, till Haryana finalises, notifies and publishes its Sub-Regional Plan.
The direction comes as a blow to Haryana, as no acquisition will take place in the NCR regions of the state till it publishes the Sub-Regional Plan.
The order was passed by a division bench headed by Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul during the hearing of a petition filed by Gurgaon resident Chandra Shekhar Misra.

Advocate Ashish Chopra, counsel for Misra, had moved the High Court, seeking directions to Haryana to get the Sub-Regional Plan approved by the National Capital Region Planning Board.
The plea sought directions to Haryana to prepare the Sub-Regional Plan in consonance with Regional Plan-2021 so that there was no haphazard construction in the state.
Chopra had said that in 2005, the NCR Planning Board had come up with a Regional Plan. All states in the NCR region were directed to prepare their Regional and Sub-Regional Plans.
However, Chopra argued, rather than coming up with a Sub-Regional Plan, the Haryana government had prepared a Master Plan for Gurgaon and notified it in 2007.
Challenging the proposed Gurgaon Master Plans, 2025 and 2031, the petitioner had asserted that preparing the plans without the approval and notification of the Sub-Regional Plan was in violation of NCR Planning Board Act, 1985.
Haryana had argued that since it had got its Regional Plan revised from the Central government, there was no need to prepare and notify a Sub-Regional Plan.
Haryana Financial Commissioner T C Gupta and Principal Secretary have sought two months’ time to notify haryana’s Sub-Regional Plan.
