Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of M/s. Hindon Resorts Pvt. Ltd. & Others Vs Ghaziabad Development Authority & Others dated 02/01/2020 regarding three STPs at Indirapuram, Ghaziabad not working properly resulting in pollution of the area.

Report submitted by the State PCB acknowledged failure in maintaining the three STPs resulting in huge water pollution for which no remedial action has been taken or even planned showing apathy of the administration.

The NGT directed the Chief Secretary, Uttar Pradesh to ensure that appropriate further action was taken against the officers responsible and also for ensuring that untreated sewage is not discharged into the river system. Remedial action should include removal of encroachments by the District Administration, apart from scientific disposal of waste and cleaning of drains regularly.
