Dehradun: 26 August, 2015
Cracking the whip, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked the Harish Rawat-led Uttarakhand government that why helicopter services to Kedarnath shrine should not be stopped.
The comments by the NGT came during the hearing of a case.
Reportedly, the NGT has also issued a notice to the Ministry of Environment & Forests (MoEF) and Uttrakhand government asking them why the chopper services should not be stopped.
The notice was issued following a plea by Doaba Paryavaran Samiti.
The Doaba Paryavaran Samiti in its plea has stated that none of the aviation companies operating the services have permit from the MoEF and Uttrakhand government, hence the said helicopter service is being illgeally provided.
