A division bench of Chief Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice N M Jamdar quashed the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) clearances while allowing a bunch of petitions filed by activists, residents and fishermen from the city challenging the project. "We are quashing the CRZ clearances granted to the project. We have held that the environment clearance is required for the project," the bench said. BMC's counsel Darius Khambata sought a stay of the order to appeal in the Supreme Court. The request was, however, refused by the high court.
