NEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal Monday directed the NOIDA and the UP pollution control board to take action on a plea against non-functioning of sewage treatment system at a Group Housing complex in Gautam Buddh Nagar.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel directed the state pollution control board, State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority and CEO NOIDA to take remedial measures in accordance with law to prevent violation of environmental norms as well as fixing accountability for past violations.

“Member Secretary, State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA), UP will act as nodal agency for coordination and compliance. The said authorities may ascertain whether requisite EC/consents have been granted and whether condition thereof are being met,” the bench said.

The green panel said functioning of STP, meeting of standards and utilisation of treated sewage and manner of disposal of treated effluents and solid waste may be looked into.

The applicant may serve a set of papers on State PCB, SEIAA, UP and CEO NOIDA and file affidavit of service within one week, the bench said.

The matter is listed for next hearing on November 15.

The tribunal was hearing a plea filed by RG Residency Apartment Owner Association against non-functioning of sewage treatment system at Group Housing complex, R.G. Residency, Sector 120, Noida resulting in untreated sewage being discharged unscientifically to the detriment of the environment.

According to the petition, in the said group housing complex, there are 1540 dwelling units and the Noida Authority granted occupancy certificate for the same on September 9, 2015.

The Project Proponent has failed to comply with the environmental norms, the plea alleged.
