Environmental Conditions Not Met, Stop The International Airport Work in Navi Mumbai – PIL
The PIL highlighted environmental concerns and implied that the environmental requirements haven't been met by the government yet. The PIL has also sought discontinuance of the Airport work as the environmental conditions, which include setting up of Mangrove Sanctuary Park of 615 Hectare area, haven't been met yet.
The PIL highlighted environmental concerns and implied that the environmental requirements haven’t been met by the government yet. The PIL has also sought discontinuance of the Airport work as the environmental conditions, which include setting up of Mangrove Sanctuary Park of 615 Hectare area, haven’t been met yet. The other conditions which haven’t been complied to, include development of alternate site for migratory birds in Sewri Coastal Wetland area.
“The authorities were to compensate for the loss of mangrove forest by declaring the area bordering the proposed airport as mangrove sanctuary. This condition has been modified arbitrarily to replace the proposed 615 hectare mangrove park with a Thane creek flamingo habitat. This is in direct violation of the conditions of environmental clearance,” the PIL asserted. The PIL also alleged that the environmental rules are not adhered to, as the execution via blasting of 92m hill area in Ulwe has already commenced.
The High Court bench comprising Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Pradeep Deshmukh have issued notices to Airport Authority of India, CIDCO, Maharashtra Pollution Board and Union Civil Aviation Ministry directing them to respond to the PIL. The PIL will be heard on March 28 by the Justices in Bombay High Court.
