Green activists file complaint against NBCC
Green activists in the capital have filed a police complaint against alleged violation of court order by National Buildings and Construction Corporation (NBCC).
The charge is that NBCC started construction and cut down trees at Sarojini Nagar and Netaji Nagar redevelopment project sites.
NBCC officials, however, claim pruning and demolition is being done as part of “preparatory work”.
“For the pruning, we have taken permission from Delhi forest department. The court in the latest hearing has asked us to submit revised proposal for the projects. The environment clearance is in process but we are yet to receive it,” an NBCC official said.
