The manner in which the Indian Railways intended to carry out the eviction was rejected by a bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and AS Oka.
The Supreme Court said, "There shall be a stay on the directives given by the High Court."
The Court made it clear that just the High Court's instructions had been stayed and that we had not suspended the proceedings.
The Court additionally declared that no more building or development is permitted on the in dispute land.
The decision was made after it was noted that the impacted parties had owned the property in question for many years, with the majority of them claiming ownership and many having resided there for 60 or more years.
