The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday ordered a stay on all construction activities at the Nirma Ltd’s upcoming cement plant in Mahuva taluka of Bhavnagar district while hearing a petition by farmers opposing it.

A division bench of Chief Justice Mr S J Mukhopadhaya and Justice Mr Akil Kureshi further ordered that the stay would become effective from Thursday (March 18) following a request by Nirma Ltd’s lawyer Mr Mihir Thakore, who said that his clients needed a day’s time to finish construction of a concrete raft which was already on the verge of completion.
