National Green Tribunal bans dumping of waste within 500 metres of Ganga

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Thursday banned the dumping of any kind of waste within 500 metres of the Holy river Ganga's edge and called for strict against those who violate its order.

A bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar directed the authorities that no waste dumping should be allowed within 500 meters from the edge of the Ganga in Unnao and Haridwar.

''Also, 100 meters from the edge of the river should be declared a “no-development zone,” the NGT said.
