On January 4, the court directed the state to issue a notification specifying the functions that could be held for the said 30 days; under Section 37 (A) of MRTP Act, the state can allow temporary change of user of a playground for that period ”. Directing that all records be brought before the court, the judges ruled that no permission should be given to use the ground for non-sport activities except by the court.
