20 bighas allotted for MSW management plant

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 20 - The Revenue and Disaster Management Department of the State has allotted a plot of land, measuring 20 bighas, to the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) in the Noonmati Garden area under Beltola Mouza of the city for setting up its solid waste management plant to tackle the city�s municipal solid waste (MSW).

This was stated by the Revenue Department in its affidavit filed before the Kolkata-based Eastern Zone (EZ) Bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT). The affidavit, signed by Additional Chief Secretary, Revenue and Disaster Management Subhash Chandra Das, was filed in connection with the Original Appeal No.19 of 2014/EZ (Rohit Choudhury versus the Union of India and Others) on the Deepor Beel issue.

The Revenue Department said in its affidavit that through its order (memo number RSS.481/2015/121 dated 06-06-2015), it has allotted the above plot to the GMC. The plot of land is covered by Dag No.7 of Village Noonmati Garden under Beltola Mouza.

However, following the request of the GMC for more land, the Revenue Department has requested the Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup (Metro) to take necessary action for identification and subsequent allotment of additional area of land in favour of the GMC for the same purpose, said the Revenue Department in its affidavit.

The affidavit said that the Kamrup (Metro) district administration had initially informed the Revenue and Disaster Management Department that an alternative site was found for using as the dumping ground of the municipal solid waste of Guwahati in the Noonmati Garden area and it measured between 30 bighas and 40 bighas.

The Chief Secretary of the State has also made a submission before the EZ Bench of the NGT on the issue. Both the Chief Secretary and the Additional Chief Secretary have stated that due to miscommunication, they could not file their affidavits at the right time. The issue will be considered by the NGT Bench on July 22.
