SC order on Noida projects puts ball back in National Board of Wildlife’s court

Source: The Hindu, Date: June , 2014

The Supreme Court order on June 10 dismissing a plea by real estate firm Jaypee Infrastructure that the Noida Authority grant completion certificates for its constructions projects located in a yet-to-be delineated “eco-sensitive area” of the Okhla Bird Sanctuary has put the ball back in the State Government’s court. Meanwhile, the National Green Tribunal (NGT)’s order of April this year that new projects within 10-km radius of Okhla Bird Sanctuary shall not be cleared unless the National Board for Wildlife (NBW) has given No Objection Certificate will continue to be in place. In October 2013, the NGT had passed orders that no construction activity to be permitted within 10-km radius of the Okhla Bird Sanctuary and for projects already completed, the construction shall be subject to final order passed by the Tribunal and the authority shall not give any completion certificate to such constructed buildings.
