For Mumbai, Shiv Sena has promised to construct a 226-acre central park within the Mahalaxmi Race Course and also talked about setting up urban forests on unused government land to tackle rising pollution.
From the US saying that the communication blackout has a “devastating impact” and “it is time for India to lift these restrictions” to how Delhi Police cracked 2011 murder case, here's the top news on Tuesday morning.
A special bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Ashok Bhushan said the court’s Forest Bench will hear the matter in
detail on October 21 to ascertain if the area in question falls in an eco-sensitive zone. It directed that no tree be cut until then.
The SC has stopped further cutting of trees on a plot where the Mumbai Metro wants to build a car shed. Government says the site is the most convenient; Bombay HC has rejected the arguments of activists.
Apart from the car shed for Metro line 3, a part of the Aarey Milk Colony -- which adjoins Sanjay Gandhi National Park -- will also be used to create Metro Bhavan, the nerve-centre for the 337-km network which is under construction.
