Renovation of the tombs, is facing court battle in Wakf Tribunal under AKTCrestored, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) has left no stone unturned in its efforts to restore the necropolis to its lost glory.The “It is beyond absurd that we at the AKTC and the Department of Archaeology have to suffer litigation in order to undertake urgently needed conservation works at a site of international significance Any judgement that would stop the ongoing work, would put to waste all the good work done by the organisation.. last court hearing had laid bare everything it has on record to show that things are being done with the utmost care. Ratish pointed out that the Qutb Shahi tombs are unique and that the restoration is largest conservation work being done in the world, not in monetary terms, but for creating a model. Out of the 70-odd structures which include wells and mosques, work is going on more than 10 monuments as well as the landscaping. ccording to the July 1, 1982 gazette, only seven tombs, some mosques and specific areas of land have been notified. So to who does the rest of the area or the necropolis belong to? According to senior Wakf Board officials, the property belongs to the board, even if it is not documented. “The law clearly states that ‘by user’ it becomes Wakf property,” he said.
