All those burning garbage, leaves, rubber etc, openly in Delhi will now be fined Rs 5,000 under the new ruling of National Green Tribunal.

” Stepping up its effort to curb pollution, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Tuesday announced a fine of Rs 5,000 on individuals spotted burning garbage, leaves, plastic, rubber, etc in open areas in parts of Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR),” a media report said.

A few days back the Green tribunal had issued an order which banned the plying of diesel vehicles which were older than 10 years on Delhi roads.

The recent rulings have come in place mainly due to the World Health Organisation (WHO) report which termed Delhi’s air as the worst in the world. At present, the levels of pollutants in Delhi’s air are 10 times higher than acceptable standards.

Other than Delhi, burning of garbage and leaf litter is already banned in Nagpur under the “Municipal Solid Wastes (Management and Handling) Rules, 2000,” that came into effect in 2001.

Earlier, the DPCC and Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (DSIDC) were asked by the NGT to submit a complete plan regarding the establishment of a hazardous waste disposal unit in Bawana and Narela.
