Nothing secret about Taj vision document: SC

The Supreme Court on Thursday told the Uttar Pradesh government that the vision document on protecting Taj Mahal, being prepared by School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), Delhi, should be made public once finalised as there was “nothing secret” about it. A Bench of Justices Madan B Lokur, S. Abdul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta was told by the SPA that the process of preparing vision document would be completed within a “few days” and as per terms of reference they would submit it to the Uttar Pradesh government. “It [vision document] should be made public. It is a vision document. There is nothing secret about it. You place it on record also,” the Bench told counsel representing Uttar Pradesh. Additional Solicitor General A.N.S. Nadkarni, appearing for the Centre, told the Bench that the first draft of the heritage plan for Taj Mahal, which is to be submitted to the UNESCO, was ready and it would be finalised within eight weeks. He said that once the heritage plan was finalised, it would be sent to the UNESCO along with the vision document. The Bench also dealt with the issue of declaring Agra as a heritage city and the Centre told the court that it had written to the Uttar Pradesh government about it. Advocate Aishwarya Bhati, representing U.P., told the Bench that they have sought the assistance of Ahmedabad-based Centre for Environmental Planning and Technology.
