The tribunal has asked the committee comprising officials from the Union Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF), Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) and Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), to file a status report on a plea that sought to stop the construction work in the redevelopment plan of the exhibition complex at Pragati Maidan A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel has given a month’s time to the committee to file a report on the same. In a letter dated November 12, 2018, the CPCB had written to the DPCC pointing out the deficiencies in the project and sought for the remedies. To this, the bench said, “In view of the above, before we consider the matter, we find it necessary to require a factual action taken report from a joint committee comprising the MoEF, CPCB and DPCC.”
