New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal has slapped a penalty of Rs 68.51 lakh on a builder for construction in the green area in a housing complex in Gurgaon in violation of environmental laws.
A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel asked the builder to deposit Rs 68,51,250 to the Central Pollution Control Board within a month.
The Deed of Declaration filed by the builder in 2009 showed the area to be an open area which was the basis on which the flats were allotted prior to 2010," the bench said.
The tribunal was hearing a plea filed by Gurgaon residents Anil Uppal and others seeking action against the builder for construction on the green/open area in a housing complex.
The approved zoning plans required maintaining at least 15 per cent of the total area as open space.
