This NorthCap University Moot Court Competition edition, Gurugram sets out the case of a country located in the peninsular region. In the last one decade the country has witnessed growing population and need for parallel growth in urban infrastructure, owing to which the State and Municipal authorities started promoting high rise residential buildings in their north-western province. In furtherance to the idea of sustainable infrastructure growth, the authorities started providing different economic incentives and tax benefits to promote private builders and construction firms to generate new residential plans.
The nation emerged as a global leader and committed to a responsible usage of natural resources in the coming years. Additionally, the country, revamped its the legal structure and functionaries to equip the machinery with efficient training in order to recreate the administration sensitive towards a sustainable growth along with economic development.
This slow yet steady movement over the years led to an aware citizenry asking for their rights through writ petitions and other legal tools for efficient usage of natural resources and environmental rights. It also eventually started to question the role of private players functioning entirely on a profit base in nexus with corrupt state authorities.
