[New Delhi]NGT Hammers Jaypee Vasant Hotel For Environmental Degradation
NGT directs 5-star Jaypee Vasant hotel to submit details of water use
The National Green Tribunal has directed a five-star hotel to submit details of its water consumption
A bench headed by Justice U D Salvi directed Hotel Jaypee Vasant to inform the tribunal about the supply of water it received through tankers between August, 2015 to January, 2016 and also submit all bills in this regard.
During the hearing, Delhi Jal Board told the bench that the hotel has two sanctioned water lines and the average consumption for 26 days is 139 kilo litres that is 5.3 litres per day through one of the water lines. The consumption from the other water line is almost negligible
The counsel appearing for the hotel informed the bench that the water requirements are met either by Delhi Jal Board or water tankers.
The tribunal had last year issued notices to
three five-star hotels,
Central Ground Water Authority,
Delhi Jal Board,
New Delhi Municipal Council,
Central Pollution Control Board.
The directions came while hearing a plea filed by Delhi resident Shailesh Singh seeking directions to immediately stop withdrawal of ground water without permission.
Singh had alleged that these five-star hotels were using “several lakh litres” of ground water and the sources of water are not visible in their premises.
The plea had alleged that according to Delhi Pollution Control Committee, one of the hotels was extracting 2,22,600 litres of water from supply and is having two bore-wells to extract ground water.
Earlier, the tribunal had imposed a fine of Rs 7.5 lakh on one of the hotels after it found “unsatisfactory” rain water harvesting systems in their premises

AAP’s Minister Demands FIR,Against EX CM Sheila Dikshit,In Water Tanker Scam

[New Delhi] AAP’ Law Minister Demands FIR Against EX CM Sheila Dikshit In Water tanker scam
Delhi Law Minister Kapil Mishra today urged Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to order an FIR against former chief minister Sheila Dikshit and others in connection with an alleged scam in hiring water tankers which caused a loss of Rs 400 crore to the state exchequer.
Mishra, who also holds the charge of Chairman of Delhi Jal Board, had on June 19 formed a ‘Fact-Finding Committee’ to look into the hiring of around 385 stainless steel water tankers from private companies during the Sheila Dikshit government in 2012.
The move comes after the committee submitted its report to DJB. In the report, the committee allegedly found irregularities in the tendering process, leading to a loss of Rs 400 crore for the government.
“This report is self explanatory and exposes how the then DJB chairman and Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and other board members have consistently bypassed laws and rules to cause a loss of almost Rs 400 crore to Delhi Jal Board,” Mishra said in his letter to Kejriwal.
He requested that an FIR should be lodged by Delhi government based on the Fact-Finding Committee’s report against all those involved in this scam.
Mishra also expressed fears that attempts would be made to destablise the AAP government and remove him from his post.
