Over 51,000 industries in Delhi under NGT lens

The National Green Tribunal has directed the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to constitute a committee to enquire about the status of 51,837 industries in the Capital, which are running in residential areas without requisite approvals.

The NGT asked the CPCB to form a two-member committee to look into the matter and take appropriate action in accordance with law.

“The North Corporation, East Corporation, South Corporation, Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation and Delhi Development Authority will cooperate and provide all assistance to the committee constituted by the CPCB,” a Bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said.
