NGT directs panel to monitor restoration of Dwarka wetlands
New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal has directed an oversight committee headed by a former high court judge to monitor the issue of restoration and revival of wetlands in Dwarka sub-city here after an environment activist sought the green panel's intervention in the matter.
A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said revival and restoration of the water bodies is necessary for recharge of ground water.
"We direct that while all the existing efforts by the authorities in terms of the directions of this tribunal may continue, the committee appointed by this tribunal in 'tribunal on its own Motion Vs. Govt of NCT of Delhi & Ors' will also act as an oversight body for execution of order in the present matter. It will be open to the parties to put forward their viewpoint to the said committee for consideration," the bench said.
