G’bad: NGT disposes of KARWA petition on storm water drains after GNN’s remedial action


The National Green Tribunal (NGT) disposed of a petition by Kaushambi Apartment Residents Welfare Association (KARWA) that had alleged that storm water drains passing from their areas were polluted after which the NGT had directed the DM and the municipal commissioner to prepare an action plan to be executed by UPPCB Member Secretary in 6 months.   

In a compliance affidavit filed by the GNN it had been stated before the Tribunal that the GNN has been engaged in taking all remedial actions for repair and maintenance of the drains and as on date all the repair work has been completed so far.

A further compliance report has been filed on Sept. 21 stating that the remaining work would be completed within 15 days. The NGT on hearing the GNN had asked it to complete the remaining work as per the established norms before disposing of the application.
