The Supreme Court on Friday stayed all proceedings pending in the Delhi High Court regarding construction of 1,100 flats for Commonwealth Games village near the Yamuna river bank.
The High Court had earlier on November three refused legal sanction and appointed a committee to assess the ecological impact of the project.
A Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan stayed the proceedings after Solicitor General G E Vahanvati made a mention of the High Court order.
The Solicitor General submitted that the conduct of the Games would be in jeopardy if the order of the High Court was to be implemented.
