Punjab stubble burning: NGT seeks amended action plan to prevent farm fires

Denouncing the action plan submitted by the Punjab government for preventing stubble burning, the National Green Tribunal has sought an amended plan.

The tribunal while hearing a matter last week regarding stubble burning in Punjab, suggested inclusion of various new components in the fresh plan.

Periodical analysis of air quality at appropriate intervals should be undertaken in identified areas, especially during the harvesting seasons and post-harvesting," the tribunal said, adding, "An adequate number of ambient air quality monitoring stations should be installed at suitable locations, especially at the hotspots." Earlier in November last year, the tribunal had directed the Punjab government to prepare and submit a time-bound action plan, disclosing phase-wise proposed action from January to September 2024, including steps to prevent stubble burning, and details of authorities responsible for the plan's implementation.

Noting shortcomings in the submitted plan, a bench of NGT Chairperson Justice Prakash Shrivastava said, "We find that the action plan is more or less an expression of routine exercise... Component of the action plan lacking in a definitive time schedule." In the order passed on January 19, the bench denounced the report for not having "proper linkages".
