No permits for brick kilns near Kaziranga

PTI New Delhi | Updated on November 22, 2017

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has refused permission to some brick kiln units to operate in the no-development zone near Kaziranga National Park in Assam, saying they do not have consent of authorities and are also one of the “most polluting industries”.

While disposing of the pleas, the NGT bench headed by Justice A. S. Naidu, who recently retired from the tribunal, also noted that there was controversy regarding whether the units are located within the no-development zone (NDZ) or outside it as claimed by the brick kilns in their application.
