NGT raps DDA on damage caused to Yamuna due to event organised by AOL


The National Green Tribunal today rapped the Delhi Development Authority for casting aspersions on the findings of its expert committee on damage caused to the Yamuna floodplains because of the 3-day cultural event organised by Art Of Living, AOL.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar took exception to the submission of the counsel for DDA, who questioned the conclusions of the seven-member expert panel. The DDA counsel said he did not intend to cast aspersions and was only questioning the basis of the findings and technology used by the experts panel.

Earlier, an expert committee had told the NGT that a whopping 42.02 crore rupees would be required to restore Yamuna floodplains which was ravaged due to a cultural extravaganza organised by AOL last year.
