Godrej To Challenge NGT Order Quashing Nod To Project

[ By Bobby Anthony ]


Godrej Properties has stated that it will challenge the NGT order quashing environmental nod granted to one of its housing project in Bengaluru, saying that no construction work has been done in the buffer zone of lake.

Earlier, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had quashed the environmental clearance (EC) granted to a high-rise residential project being built by Godrej in Bengaluru for raising construction in the buffer zone of Kaikondrahalli lake.

It may be recalled that a bench comprising NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and Justice S P Wangdi had stated that no environmental clearance could be granted permitting construction in the buffer zone of Kaikondrahalli lake and drains merely by imposing a condition that no such construction will be raised.

“Stand of the project proponent that the project is permissible cannot be accepted. It is clear that the project stipulates construction in the buffer zone, in violation of zoning plan and judgment of this tribunal as affirmed by the Supreme Court. Accordingly, the appeal is allowed and the EC is quashed,” the bench had stated.
