The National Green Tribunal has taken exception to non-compliance of its order for maintaining roads and pavements with sufficient green cover in Ghaziabad and summoned the municipal commissioner there for explaining the delay in the implementation of the directive. A bench headed by Justice R S Rathore slammed the corporation for not executing its order despite giving an unconditional undertaking and assurance to the tribunal. It also took exception to the affidavit filed by the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation (GMC) stating that the green panel’s direction of May 16, 2016 order had been complied with.

“There is no dispute about the fact that the compliance of the said order has not been fully made so far. More over an undertaking was given by the respondent namely the civic body on November 15, 2016 whereby they sought two month’s time to comply with the order. “Now even after seven months, the compliance has not been made. Therefore before proceeding further, we direct the GMC commissioner to remain present before the tribunal on the next date of hearing (July 24),” the bench said.
