Air pollution: NGT seeks info on vehicles owned by society

New Delhi: A housing society, which had approached the National Green Tribunal complaining about noise and air pollution due to functioning of unauthorised auto workshops within its vicinity, was today asked to come out with information on the number of vehicles owned by each resident.

The green panel also asked the society to submit information on the number of dwelling units and total parking space available in the society.

The order came subsequent to a report filed by East Delhi Municipal Corporation, through advocate Balendu Shekhar, stating that requisite measures for removal of 24 illegal shops have already been taken.

A bench headed by Justice U D Salvi directed the Aviation Employees Cooperative House Building Society Ltd to furnish the details by August 5, the next date of hearing.

"There has to be reciprocity of rights and duties between the parties to lis (dispute) which needs to be enforced for complete and effectual redressal of the grievances," the bench said while seeking information.

The society had alleged that unauthorised and illegal auto shops and building material shops were generating air and noise pollution.

It had alleged "inaction" on part of civic authorities here for allowing some automobile service centres or workshops to operate within residential area.

In a similar case of air pollution, the Tribunal had invited suggestions from authorities on providing incentives to those transferring or scrapping old, polluting diesel vehicles and on fixing a cap on the number of vehicles to be registered in the capital.
