NGT wants CNG station in Manali by January

The National Green Tribunal wants installation of a CNG station at Manali by January 2016 and has directed the Centre and all the departments concerned of the state to extend their full cooperation for the project to protect the eco-sensitive area of Rohtang.

The green panel has said that the CNG project needs to be dealt expeditiously in order to protect the eco-sensitive area of Rohtang which is one of the most beautiful part of the state.

“The counsel appearing for the different authorities, companies, state government and central government have agreed to a proposal to make it possible to supply the CNG gas at Manali. They have placed on record a note to ensure execution of the issues decided.

“The GAIL Gas Ltd shall be responsible for execution of the project. However, all other authority present before the tribunal would fully cooperate with them and do not unnecessarily put obstruction in grant of permission and facilitating the compliance of the order of the tribunal,” a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said.Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board argued before the bench that GAIL was yet to make any formal application for grant of NOC and it has only given expression of interest to the board.
