NGT Becomes Strict Against Hill Mining


The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has instructed to investigate against the hills that have been destroyed in the Khanapara-Jorabat area.

The NGT has been strict against the destruction of the hills in the Assam-Meghalaya border and has formed a special committee to investigate into the issue. The NGT has asked the committee to submit a report within four weeks of the formation of the committee.

It may be mentioned that mining of the hills in the Meghalaya side in the stretch of Khanapara-Jorabat road has been continued since long for which it caused flash floods in the area.

The mining of the hills has also been a major cause for the artificial flood in Guwahati and therefore, the NGT has asked to investigate on the issue and submit a report within four weeks by the special committee that was formed on Thursday.
