The Supreme Court of India has extended the deadline for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to vacate its headquarters office in the Rouse Avenue area of Delhi. The new deadline is now set for August 10, 2024. This extension comes after the court's earlier mandate that AAP vacate the premises by June 15, 2024.

This ruling is the latest development in a series of legal proceedings concerning the allocation and usage of land in Delhi, highlighting the ongoing balancing act between urban development and institutional requirements.
