NGT hearing on Posco postponed


OST Bureau

New Delhi, Jan 23:

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Thursday postponed the hearing on the petition against tree felling at the proposed site for the Posco steel plant project near Paradip in Jagatsinghpur district to tomorrow due to lack of quorum.18isbs_POSCO_GEH59_1147013e

It may be mentioned that land acquisition for the project was suspended in May last year after the NGT ordered a stay on the felling of trees in the project area till January 21 and fixed the date of hearing on January 23.

The state government cannot transfer the additional 1000 acres to the project unless the NGT stay on the project is lifted.
