NGT lifts ban on construction, entry of trucks in Delhi-NCR

NGT lifts ban on construction, entry of trucks in Delhi-NCR

If it is not possible to install a rainwater harvesting system, the institution should approach the committee within a week from Thursday.

In February 2015, Srimannarayana approached the Supreme Court and was directed to go to the NGT, where he filed a petition claiming that the areas under the capital were classified in Seismic Zone III and prone to earthquakes.

According to sources, the bench ordered that the meeting should be held twice in a month and will be dealing with the application of the schools and colleges. After that, there will be inspection done in the premises by the committee.

If there are indications that rain harvesting systems can not be installed, then the institution should approach the committee within a week from today.

After the Central Pollution Control Board and the Delhi Pollution Control Committee submitted data on the present pollution levels in the national capital, the National Green Tribunal on Friday lifted the ban on construction activities in Delhi-NCR.

However, they will have to obtain a certificate from a committee constituted by the NGT and set up rainwater harvesting system in a neighbouring area demarcated by the committee.

"The supervisory committee shall meet at least once in three months to finalise all policy directions and the manner in which the order granting the EC and conditions imposed in this judgement are to be carried out by the project proponent", the bench said.

The Green Court said that it won't interfere in administrative order on the entry of trucks, but hence the entry will continue into Delhi with strict regulations by the authorities concerned.
