GOVERNMENT PROPOSE TO APPEAL AGAINST THE NGT ORDER


The Government has decided to go in for an appeal before the National Green Tribunal to review/modify its order regarding the BUFFER ZONE to be left in and around lakes, raja kaluve, secondary channel and the teritory canals, but will be stiffly countered by the environmentalists.

Though, the NGT order is not retrospective, it is prospective, the NGT may not provide any major relief to the Government and the LAND MAFIA, there is a widespread resentment over the order of the tribunal only among the encroachers and illegal buildings.

LAKE, VALLEYS, RAJA KALUVE, PRIMARY AND SECONDARY DRAINS OR CHANNELS  -BUFFER ZONE- GOVT DIRECTIONS


With the implementation of the National Green Tribunal’s landmark judgement against the Mantri Techzone Private Limited and Coremind Software and Services Private Limited to follow the 75-metre buffer zone for lakes and wetlands, the government has cracked the whip on builders.

The government has DIRECTED the two civic agencies – Bruhat Bengaluru Mahangara Palike and Bangalore Development Authority – to implement the orders with immediate effect.

The NGT orders will  affect the ongoing projects which are not completed, though it is approved,  projects within 75 metres of waterbodies from the border or the edge or the periphery of the boundary wall.

Though the government does not have any specific numbers of such projects that come in the 75-metre buffer zone, it has asked engineers from both the departments to conduct a fresh survey and mark boundaries of the buffer zone.

BDA, BBMP and the district administration to mark boundaries of all storm water drains (SWD), lakes and rajakaluves and have directions not to issue plans or change of land-use or any kind of developmental activity in buffer zone.
The BWSSB has already garnered itself and will be issuing notices to the apartment complexes which have more than 20 apartment to install the SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS and discharge the treated (properly treated) sewage to the communal drains.

According to NGT orders, buffer zones of rajakaluves, drains and wetlands must be calculated from the edge of the drain, as opposed to the current norm of measuring from the centre of the drain.

The orders will hence, disallow any further construction at least 75 metres from a lake and 50 metres around a primary SWD from the boundary wall or the border or the edge of the Lake or Raja kaluve.

Earlier, officials were following a 30-metre buffer zone order, calculated from the centre of the drain.

In the case of lakes  75 meters ( 246 feet )from the periphery of the waterbody will be maintained as a green belt or buffer zone

» 50 meters (164 feet) from the edge of a primary rajakaluve

» 35 meters(115feet)from the edge of a secondary rajakaluve

» 25 meters (82 feet) from the edge of tertiary rajakaluve
