New Delhi [India], October 11 (ANI): Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Sunday imposed a fine of Rs 50 lakh on the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC) for not following the anti-pollution directives of the government.
According to an official release, Delhi Environment Minister said, "Massive dust pollution is happening here. The guidelines issued by the Delhi Government regarding pollution control are not being followed by the agency, therefore, strict action will be taken against the NCRTC. The NCRTC is already aware that anti-dust operations are being carried out all over Delhi but they are not following the rules completely. I have penalised the NCRTC of Rs 50 lakh. If despite this they continue the violation, then the work will be banned."
