The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Monday told the
Delhi government’s Revenue department to transfer land to the Delhi Jal Board
(DJB) for setting up of sewage treatment plants in different areas. It has also
asked the Delhi Police to aid the DJB in acquiring the land. Civic bodies also
faced flak from the NGT after they failed to show a single drain cleaned by
them, in compliance with a previous order on May 8. Acquiring land remains the
biggest challenge for the DJB, in order to execute the NGT’s ambitious plan to
clean the Yamuna — Maili se Nirmal Yamuna Revitalisation Project 2017.
