National Green Tribunal orders against felling of trees for Yettinahole Project


Belthangady: The Principal Bench of the National Green Tribunal, New Delhi on Wednesday ordered against felling of trees for the Yettinahole Project without necessary permission from the Central Department of Environment.

Advocate Prince Isaac, appearing on behalf of petitioner KN Somashekhar, filed an affidavit on Wednesday before the Bench alleging that Karnataka Neeravari Nigam Ltd and contractors had violated the order issued on August 29. As per court orders, the Karnataka Neeravari Nigam Ltd was supposed to plant ten times trees for every tree cut.

The final hearing was supposed to be held on Wednesday, but the government advocates said that they were unable to draft a reply due to the Cauvery dispute. But the Advocates on behalf of the petitioners argued that it was just a tactic to delay the hearing. The Bench said that if the order failed to reach within a week, it would not be considered. The final hearing has been adjourned to November 7 and 8.
