The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Wednesday issued notice to the South Delhi Municipal Corporation, the Delhi Jal Board and Additional Commissioner (licensing) to decide the fate of around 70 Mahipalpur hotels facing closure for flouting pollution norms. Earlier, the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) had refused to give these budget hotels licences since they did not have proper effluent and sewage treatment plants. “Notice has been issued to all these authorities so that they may be present for the next hearing on May 18,” Delhi Pollution Control Committee counsel Sanjeev Ralli said. On the next date of hearing, the green court will take up the issue of licensing with the civic agencies and the water utility.
