Centre Tells Supreme Court It Has Come Out With An Ordinance To Curb Pollution

Bookmark

The Centre informed the Supreme Court on Thursday that it has come out with an Ordinance on curbing pollution that has been promulgated already.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde said that it would have to look at the Ordinance before passing any direction in the matter of pollution caused due to stubble burning in neighbouring states of Delhi.

We would like to look at the Ordinance before passing any order. Even the petitioners would like to see. Let's hear it next Friday, said the bench, also comprising Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta apprised the bench about the Ordinance.
