The National Green Tribunal (NGT) Wednesday pulled up the Jaypee group and directed them to decide in a month whether they want to operate the garbage processing plant at Dadumajra or not.
The Municipal Corporation also claimed that the plant authorities have been refused tipping fee. Municipal Corporation Commissioner K K Yadav said, “Our officials who attended the hearing have informed me that the NGT has given one month deadline to the group to decide whether they want to run the plant or not. Also, tipping fee that they were demanding has been rejected.”
Last month, the Jaypee group that had agreed to hand over the garbage processing plant to the civic body backed out saying they are not aware of any such thing. The sole garbage processing plant of the city is being run in Dadumajra by the company.
A few days ago, the plant authorities had said that they will hand over the plant. The civic body wanted the company to hand over the Dadumajra plant. The corporation then immediately decided to appoint a mediator who would fix the salvage value. But, they later backed out, the NGT was informed during the hearing.
