Claiming that there were over 1,700 illegal colonies in the national capital which have come up with the alleged "active connivance" of the officials of the local authorities and the Delhi government, the petition has sought an immediate stoppage of unauthorised constructions.
The petition was listed for hearing before a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar, but could not be taken up as one of the judges was not available.
It would be now taken up for hearing on November 3.
He has sought directions to the local authorities like the municipal bodies, DDA and the Delhi government, "to stop regularisation of any unauthorised colony till infrastructure development has taken place in all such colonies and safety norms are complied with".
In his plea, he has also sought fixing of accountability on the officials who had allowed such unauthorised colonies to come up, and taking of strict action against them.
