Concerned over lack of coordination and cooperation between various departments in cleaning river Yamuna, the National Green Tribunal had in March said it has all the “trappings of the civil court” and its directions on this and other issues should be complied with without any “default and delay”.
The Tribunal had also expressed regret that “none of the agencies has taken any effective steps in furtherance to the judgement of the Tribunal at the ground level”.
