✅NGT Imposed Penalty Of Rs 3500 Crore On West Bengal Government

Kolkata: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has come as a shock to the West Bengal government led by TMC chief Mamata Banerjee. A fine of Rs.3500 crore has been imposed for non-compliance of solid and liquid waste management rules in the state. According to the state budget 2022-2023, the government has the flexibility to spend 12,819 crore rupees for urban development and municipal affairs. However, the NGT expressed impatience that the Mamata Banerjee government did not prioritize setting up sanitation management centers.

It is the responsibility of local bodies and states to provide a pollution-free environment to the people. People should not be denied their right to live because of lack of funds. States should not delay in discharging their responsibilities while waiting for the release of central government funds. We have taken into account the damage done to the environment. State government has to pay compensation for violation of rules. The bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice AK Goel directed the Bengal government to deposit Rs.3500 crore within two months. It has warned that Bengal government should take immediate action on garbage management and if the violations continue like this, they will have to pay additional compensation. It has been stated that 2,758 million liters of sewage water is flowing in the state per day, but only 1,268 MLDs are being cleaned with the establishment of 44 STPs. It expressed impatience that the gap between the two was huge.
