NGT panel to inspect Nirma plant site soon in Gujarat
A two-member committee formed by National Green Tribunal (NGT) would visit the Nirma cement plant site next week at Mahuva in Bhavnagar district of Gujarat to inspect the wetland and also look for damage to water bodies at the factory location.
Justice Swatanter Kumar-headed NGT bench had issued an order in this regard on August 23. While delivering the interim order, the bench said that a common prayer was made by the counsel appearing for the parties that expert members, who had visited the site earlier, visit the site in monsoon as well so as to assess the complete and comprehensive situation with regard to wetland and likely damage to the water bodies.
Expert members, who had earlier visited the site, shall revisit the area by next week after issuing notice to the counsel appearing for parties in this case, the order states.
