Delhi,11,October,2018

 

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked the Center why it is so that most of Delhi's pollution control (PUC) centers are either not working or are going to stop. The court asked the Center, 'What kind of pollution are you controlling?' The bench of Justice Madan B Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta asked this question from the Center after considering the status report submitted by the government.

 

 

 

 

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) ANS Nadkarni, representing the Center, told the court that there were meetings on the detailed work plan. The objective of this Action Plan is to deal with air pollution in the Delhi-NCR region. The bench asked the ASG, 'What is the use of all these? How many Pollution Control Centers are there in Delhi? ASG said that there are around 200 PUC centers. On this, the bench asked, 'About 170 out of 200 PUC centers are not working. What kind of pollution are you controlling? ' The bench said that further hearing will be held in this regard in January.
