Rs 50-cr NGT fine on Punjab over river pollution 

New Delhi, November 14

The National Green Tribunal has ordered the Punjab Government to deposit a fine of Rs 50 crore as environmental compensation for polluting the Sutlej and Beas due to uncontrolled industrial discharge.

The Bench had clubbed several similar cases, including the one dealing with the death of fish due to untreated discharge from sugar industries in May this year.

It has asked Punjab to recover the fine from industries in two weeks. “Earlier, a committee found that the discharge was not being treated as treatment plants were not functioning,” PPCB counsel Nagendra Benipal said.
