Justice S.K. Kaul and M.M. Sundresh said that a three-judge bench of the apex court is already interdicted with the issue which has been dealt with, by the single judge of the High Court premises and using the spaces for commercial interests, like the petitioners on the one hand and the rights of the lakhs of devotees who visit the mandir. The Dharamshala within the mandir is not meant to be occupied permanently by shopkeepers, or their families running shops in the mandir premises.

According to the court, the petitioners have been living in the Dharamshala inside the temple enclosure for several years, ranging up to 40 years. They added, "This is obviously without paying a single penny, in the mandir, which is run by the baridaars and other stakeholders with whom litigation is currently pending before this in the court."

The court came with the decision of removing illegal and unauthorized shopkeepers, occupants, chabutra holders aiming protection of visitors. It will be done with the help of the Delhi Police and SDMC. The court also declines to extend the last date of vacating the premises.
