NGT approves to set up solid waste project in Shimla

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has cleared the proposal for setting up an ultra-modern plant in Bharyal village at the Tara-Devi-Totu Bypass for the safe disposal of the huge solid waste generated by Shimla city every day.

In an order passed by Justice AS Naidu and Dr GK Pandey (Expert Member), the NGT, however, directed the Municipal Corporation of Shimla to set up the plant strictly following the Municipal Solid Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2000, and after obtaining clearance under the amended Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) Notification, 2006.
