New Delhi, September 16The National Green Tribunal has directed the Delhi chief secretary to look into illegal encroachments and unregulated markets at Samalkha Extension near Kapashera here.
A Bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel asked the chief secretary to monitor the action taken by the relevant authority and furnish a composite report in the matter within a month.
“Since illegalities are admitted but responsibility is disowned on the ground that another department is responsible, this aspect needs to be looked into by the Chief Secretary, Delhi,” it said.
The tribunal noted that the status report filed by the DPCC states that certain steps have been taken but it is not clear whether on the ground any effective action has been taken in the matter.
The NGT was hearing a plea filed by city resident Narendra Vats contending that illegal encroachments and unregulated markets have come up at Samalkha Extension, East Telephone Exchange Road near Sonia Gandhi Camp, Samalkha village and National Highway 48.
