No illegal construction in Taj eco-sensitive zone: NGT to UP

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar directed the state government to conduct physical demarcation of the forest area and the green belt within 500 m of the Taj Tapezium Zone.

The green panel also directed that the demarcation activity shall be executed in the presence of representative from Forest Survey of India (FSI) and National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI).

"We direct that State will ensure no felling of trees or removal of any kind of greenery from the Taj Tapezium Zone. It shall also ensure no unauthorised and illegal construction activities are permitted to come within this area till the next date of hearing," the bench said
