Action against unauthorized industries near KNP!

The National Green Tribunal has asked the ministry of environment and forests to step up action against the unauthorized industrial units operating in the No Development Zone around the Kaziranga National Park in Assam.

The Tribunal, however, asked the ministry to obtain its prior permission before taking any coercive action against three tea processing units operating within the No Development Zone near Numaligarh Refinery near the Kaziranga park, which is home to the largest population of one-horned rhinoceros.
A tribunal bench asked the ministry to take action against other industries in the No-Development-Zone. The tribunal had earlier restrained the ministry from granting any fresh approval to the stone-crushing or other industrial units in the vicinity of the park.
