Green court issues bailable warrant against Metro chief

NEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal has issued a bailable warrant against the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation Managing Director, Mangu Singh, for the failure of its officials to appear before it to appraise on the installation of rainwater harvesting systems.
A bench headed by acting NGT chairperson Justice UD Salvi passed the order after noting that nobody appeared before it despite its earlier order directing DMRC's senior-most officer to be present before it.
The tribunal had directed the official to be present to explain why rainwater harvesting system could not be installed at some locations of Delhi Metro.
"None present on behalf of the DMRC despite its presence being felt necessary as per the order dated December 4, 2017. Consequently, we issue bailable warrants against the Managing Director, DMRC in a sum of Rs 20,000 to the satisfaction of the arresting officer in the exercise of our powers," the bench said.
The matter will be heard on February 14.
The tribunal had earlier slapped fines on four real estate developers here after it was found that rainwater harvesting system installed on their premises was not functional.
