THE NATIONAL Green Tribunal (NGT) on Thursday adjourned the hearing in the ongoing Dadumajra garbage processing plant until October 28 after Jaypee Group sought time to file reply.
The counsel of Jaypee Group informed the tribunal that they were yet to assess value of the machinery installed in the plant. Jaypee Group is demanding Rs 30 crore for machinery. A committee formed by the corporation is assessing the value of machinery installed. A meeting of the group and the committee evaluating the machinery is scheduled to be held on October 10.
Following directions from the tribunal, Chandigarh Municipal Corporation and Jaypee Group are trying to resolve the issue. On July 11, the Jaypee Group had suspended operations of the plant. After this, back-to-back protests took place as the entire garbage was being dumped in the landfill site.
It was after the civic body moved the NGT that the latter in its orders to the Jaypee Group directed that they should open the plant on or before July 27, following which the company again started running the plant.
