State produces MoEF documents on Lavasa

Last Updated: Thursday, November 17, 2011 - 23:09

Pune: The Maharashtra Pollution Control
Board (MPCB), which has filed a case against Lavasa
Corporation in a magistrate court here, on Thursday submitted all
relevant documents from the Union Ministry of Environment and
Forests in the court.

The state agency also filed record of Registrar of
Company (RoC), containing information about the directors of
Lavasa Corporation, in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate
NT Ghadge.

The court, at an earlier hearing, had demanded these
documents. The next hearing will be on November 23.

Lavasa township project in Pune district ran into trouble
after the Union Ministry questioned how the project could
start off without mandatory clearances.

MoEF later said it would grant clearance if, among other
things, the state took action against the Corporation.

Recently, after the state filed a case under the
Environment Protection Act against the Corporation, the Union
ministry granted clearance to the first phase of the ambitious
project.
