The move comes after the President sought Delhi government's comments on the report of the Lokayukta in which Justice Manmohan Sarin in November 2013 had ruled that granting of provisional certificate for regularization of unauthorized colonies in 2008 by Dikshit was done to gain political mileage in the elections.

During the subsequent hearings, the Lokayukta also had observed that the conditions of the Supreme Court order have not been complied with during the issuance of the provisional certificates prior to the election and sent the report to the President.

A complaint regarding the matter was filed by BJP leader Harsh Vardhan in 2010.

Vardhan had alleged that Dikshit had misused her power while issuing provisional regularization certificates to unauthorized colonies in 2008.

The Delhi government had issued provisional regularization certificates to over 1,218 unauthorized colonies before the 2008 assembly polls and had announced regularization of 1,639 colonies just before the polls now.

These unauthorized colonies in which around 40 lakh people reside do not have basic amenities.
