The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Tuesday lashed out on Delhi Government, a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel lambasted the government for not closing the industrial units in the residential areas of the national capital.
The NGT had directed the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) to act against stainless steel pickling industries in the residential areas of the city. All these industries fall under the prohibited list of industrial activity as per the Delhi Master Plan (DMP), 2021.
The NGT has imposed Rs 50 crore fine on Delhi Govt and directed it to shut these industrial units with immediate effect. NGT’s order came on a plea filed by the All India Lokadhikar Sangthan, an NGO seeking the execution of NGT’s previous order.
