NGT warns DDA of penalty if order not complied with

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to undertake the process of demarcation of the Yamuna floodplains within three months and subsequently start work on the biodiversity parks.

The NGT also warned that in case of non-compliance of orders, a fine of ₹5 lakh per month will be imposed on the DDA till compliance of orders.

While hearing a plea on the rejuvenation of river Yamuna, a Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said, “The DDA may undertake physical demarcation of the entire floodplains within three months and thereafter, after taking repossession within the next three months, fence such areas and convert them into biodiversity parks.”
