NGT Stays 6 Projects By Chhatisgarh Govt On Mahanadi

The green court has clearly ordered that the Government of Chhattisgarh can not undertake six grade ‘A’ projects without its permission.

Of the 57 projects, work of 51 is in progress while construction of six others is yet to begin. The ban is applicable on these six.

Social activist Sudarsan Das had moved the green court seeking a stay on the construction. Acting on his petition, the court issued such a directive. Next hearing has been scheduled for August 25.
