NGT imposes Rs cost on Haryana for not following directions in illegal mining case

The National Green Tribunal has imposed a cost of Rs 10,000 on Haryana for not filing a report on illegal mining in the Rithoj village of Gurugram district despite earlier directions.

The Tribunal was hearing a petition that claimed unscientific illegal mining in the village had resulted in the depletion of the water table, green cover, and damage to water bodies.

The green body had noted that the administration did not take any action despite the illegal mining continuing.

In its order dated February 8, the tribunal had said the conduct showed paralysis of the administration on the subject, in breach of the "public trust doctrine", the bench added.

The NGT had also directed the Haryana chief secretary to personally look into the matter and take remedial measures, besides filing an action taken report within a month.

"We grant a further three weeks as prayed by counsel for the state to file the report, subject to a deposit of cost of Rs 10,000, which is to be deposited by the state in the ring-fenced account within one week," the tribunal added.

The matter has been posted to February 9 for further proceedings.
