The panel further has asked the Assam government to clear its position on eco-sensitive zones.

The bench said on Friday, “we direct that the State of Assam shall submit its clear stand in relation to: declaration of Eco Sensitive Zone, Pattas which were primarily for agricultural purposes and at best incidental residential construction; and how it has resulted in State permitting large scale hotels projects in and around Kaziranga."
