‘Approach Centre Over NGT Sittings’

A HC division Bench directed the petitioner to approach the central government on issues related to the sitting of National Green Tribunal (NGT). The Bench asked him to adduce enough reasons to support his demand for directing the NGT to hold its sittings in the city. An advocate had filed PIL requesting the HC to direct the NGT to hold its sittings in Bangalore. He had contended that the NGT Act, 2010, provides for notifying the place/places of sitting though it does not permit bifurcation of the territory. As the NGT is holding its sittings only in Chennai, it is causing huge logistic problem to the people of state and the authorities concerned have to set up their offices in Chennai to attend the cases related to their departments.
