NGT vacates stay on construction works


New Delhi, Nov 17: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday vacated its stay on construction works in Delhi-NCR and ordered the concerned states to submit their “Action Plan” within two weeks to showcase how they will tackle pollution.

A NGT bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar stated non-compliance of the order will lead to exemplary fine.

“If Action Plans are not submitted in two weeks, exemplary fine will be charged from the salaries of concerned senior officials,” Kumar said.

“Let us know as a state when you will do what… You comply with the order or face contempt.”

The NGT also sought an action plan related to pollution standards in the national capital.
