Justice Sunil Gaur directed the AJL to vacate the premises in two weeks time, failing which the Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorized Occupants) proceedings will be initiated against the Herald House. It also rejected the AJL counsel’s request to stay the operation of the order for sometime. The court passed the order on AJL’s plea against the government’s notice issued on October 30.

The weekly newspaper ‘National Herald on Sunday’ resumed on September 24 last year and the place of publication was the ITO premises, AJL had said, adding that the Hindi weekly newspaper Sunday Navjivan was also being published since October this year from the same premises.

The Centre had issued a notice to AJL on the grounds that “no press has been functioning in the said premise for the last 10 years”. It also alleged “misuse” of the premises; and transfer of shares of AJL to Young India without permission of the lessor which is in ‘violation of a clause in a lease deed’.
