The tentative cost of rejuvenating the Yamuna floodplain where The Art of Living held World Culture Festival can be undertaken after November because the area is inundated by floodwater, an expert committee has informed the National Green Tribunal (NGT). The committee was appointed by the NGT to assess the damage to the floodplain by the World Culture Festival held in March.
The seven-member committee, headed by Water Resources Secretary Shashi Shekhar, told a bench headed by Justice Jawad Rahim that a survey for determining the cost of restoration could not be completed due to “non-favourable conditions”. The NGT will hear the matter on October 7.
On August 10, the NGT had directed the committee to quantify the damage and furnish tentative cost for restoration of the area and allowed the panel to engage any specialised agency for the purpose.
