Pollution: Green Tribunal asks UP to monitor brick kilns

Oct 17, 2020 15:20 IST

The National Green Tribunal on Saturday directed the Uttar Pradesh administration to keep a vigil against illegal operation of brick kilns to protect the air quality in the National Capital Region. A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice A K Goel noted that brick kiln industry contributed about 5 to 7 per cent of PM10 emissions in winter and summer, respectively, to Delhi and NCR air. The green tribunal bench also dismissed an application seeking permission to operate brick kiln.
