NGT imposes monthly tax on all households in Delhi

National Green Tribunal (NGT) has ordered that every household in Delhi pay a monthly environmental compensation to clean up Yamuna river. The compensation to be paid will be directly proportional to the property or water tax, whichever is higher, paid by a particular household. In case of households in unauthorised colonies, which do not pay property tax or water bill, the amount would be 100 to 500 rupees.

This amount would be added to electricity bills, water bill or the property tax by the respective departments which will transfer the money to Delhi government. The fund created from this compensation will be utilized to set up new sewage treatment plants and provide other technology to clean up river Yamuna. The NGT bench headed by its chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar was hearing a petition by environmental activist, Manoj Misra against severe pollution in Yamuna river.
