Mumbai:The Bombay High Court (HC) has held that a member of a village panchayat cannot be disqualified, just because her spouse had encroached upon a government land or public property.
To incur disqualification under the law, such encroachment should have been done by the member alone and not by his or her spouse, the court ruled.
