NGT seeks report from chief secretary on arsenic contamination

Source: The Times of India, Date: September , 2015

The National Green Tribunal (NGT), Eastern Zone Bench, on Monday, directed the chief secretary to file a report on the arsenic situation in West Bengal. The NGT had earlier expressed concern after going through a report on arsenic contamination in Kolkata that appeared in The Times of India. Environment activist Subhas Datta had then been allowed to file a petition on the matter.
