LG seeks report on green cess from govt
NEW DELHI: Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has sought a report from the Arvind Kejriwal government over alleged non-utilisation of Rs 1,002 crore collected as environment compensation charge (ECC).
The LG's direction came after a memorandum was submitted by Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta requesting an inquiry "into non- utilisation or misuse of government money of environment cess to the tune of Rs 1,002 crore".
"The Lieutenant Governor has desired that a report in the matter through the minister (Transport), GNCTD, be submitted expeditiously for his kind perusal," R N Sharma, Special Secretary to LG, said in a letter to Transport Commissioner.
Tiwari and Gupta had met Baijal on November 16 and urged him to seek a report from the AAP government on the environment cess and direct it to procure 8,000 new buses with the fund.
