Source: India Today, Date: May , 2014

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has directed the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF), the Delhi government and three civic bodies to explain within four weeks the steps taken to address the acute waste disposal crisis in Delhi.

The three municipal corporations along with the MoEF and the Delhi chief secretary has been asked to submit their reports within the four-week period. The notices were issued after the NHRC took suo moto cognizance of a recent report in MAIL TODAY on the problem of overflowing garbage in Delhi.

On Wednesday, MAIL TODAY had reported about the Capital's poor solid waste management system that resulted in garbage not being lifted by civic bodies for weeks. The three landfills at Ghazipur, Okhla and Balsawa are already overflowing with waste, the report said, adding that garbage is being allowed to pile up in dhalaos to avoid dumping waste in the overflowing landfills.
