Action against Adarsh Society by this week: Jairam

The scam-hit Adarsh Housing Society will face action for its violation of green norms by the end of the week, according to Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh.

While the Maharashtra environment department and coastal zone authority have both submitted their reports to the Union Ministry, denying that they granted any clearance to the controversial project, Mr. Ramesh said he is still awaiting the state urban development department’s report.

The Adarsh building is 31-storeys tall, in blatant violation of coastal zone regulations that permit only a six-storey building in that area. Speaking to reporters, Mr. Ramesh made it clear that state urban development department was not authorised to grant such clearances.
