NGT imposes fine of Rs 20,000 for polluting Hindon

East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) and the civic authorities of Ghaziabad have been ordered by the National Green Tribunal on Monday to impose a fine of Rs 20,000 on people who dump garbage in and around the Hindon.

The solid wastes and construction debris dumped along the canal are also to be removed within two days.

Resident of Delhi's Vasundhara Enclave, J P Sharma, showed the court photographs of indiscriminate waste dumping along the Hindon canal and its banks which led to the decision.

"Any person throwing municipal solid waste and construction debris or any other waste in and around the Hindon canal will be liable to pay Rs 20,000 as environmental compensation in terms of Section 15 read with Section 17 of the National Green Tribunal Act, 2010", said the NGT bench.

"Any vehicle which is used for the purpose of throwing such wastes in and around Hindon canal will be seized by these authorities", a bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said.

Earlier too, Uttar Pradesh government was slammed by NGT for discharging industrial waste into the Hindon and also for polluting Yamuna.
