Sri Sri Ravi Shankar's Art of Living to appeal against NGT order, won't pay Rs 5 crore fine

New Delhi: Spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has decided to appeal against the verdict passed by a green court over slapping Rs 5 crore fine on the Art of Living (AoL) for organising a cultural event on the fragile banks of Yamuna this weekend.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) had on Wednesday faulted every concerned government agency over the World Culture Festival and slapped a Rs 5 crore fine on its organisers, but it did not stay the event.

 

The NGT also fined the central government-led Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Rs 5 lakh and another Rs 1 lakh on the Delhi Pollution Control Committee.
