The Supreme Court has given a blow to many states including Maharashtra, which did not have proper strategy for the management of solid waste management due to rising population and housing. The Supreme Court has ordered that unless the proper policy for solid waste management in the state is implemented, the construction work can not be done. Therefore, the construction of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Chandigarh and other states has been postponed.
Even after the solid waste management rules were prepared in 2016, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Chandigarh and the Union Territories did not comply with any concrete policy, according to the rules. The Supreme Court’s decision was taken from this thread. Madan Lokur and Justice Abdul Nazeer’s Benches attracted these states on Friday. Although the rules have been prepared for two years, the states do not form a policy, it is very pathetic, the court said, ‘So,’ no such construction will be done unless the states are designated.
The court has imposed a fine of Rs three lakh each for all the states which have delayed the planning of solid waste management policy. The penalty was imposed by the state government for not presenting the affidavit. If the state government feels that people are living in unhygienic conditions and in the trash, then the court expresses dissatisfaction with what we can do.
