Oct 18, 2020 10:55 IST

The Noida administration on Saturday said it issued penalties worth Rs 11,15,000 on various private contractors and entities for flouting anti-air pollution guidelines and rules in the city. Action has been taken as per the guidelines of the Graded Response Action Plan (GRAP), which came into force on Thursday amid deteriorating air quality in the Delhi NCR. Four contractors were issued fines by the water department totalling Rs 4 lakh for laying pipelines in violation of the rules, while fourteen others were issued fines totalling Rs 3,50,000 for violating guidelines of the National Green Tribunal.
