It’s curtains for town project conceived by GLADA 16.12.2017 The Tribune
Kuldip Bhatia Ludhiana, December 15 Bowing to prolonged agitation by the employees of two power corporations and pressure of trade unions of the power utility, the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has taken a policy decision not to hand over 32 acre land under its possession in Ludhiana to the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) for commercial purposes under the ‘Down Town’ project. GLADA had conceptualised a ‘Down Town’ project for the city way back in 2013 and, allegedly under the pressure of the then SAD-BJP government, the PSPCL had agreed to hand over the 32 acre prime land on Ferozepeur Road (National Highway) for the project, which was to be spread in a total area of 100 acre land adjoining Sidhwan Canal. However, the staff and engineers of the two power corporations – the PSPCL and the Punjab State Transmission Corporation Limited, had been vehemently protesting the decision on the ground that all administrative offices of the two power corporations would have to be ...

NGT bans sale of plastic items along Ganga belt from Haridwar up to Rishikesh 15.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday announced that it would be imposing a ban on the sale, purchase and storage of plastic items such as bags, plates, spoons, etc along river Ganga in Haridwar’s Hari Ki Puri Rishikesh up to areas in Uttarkashi. As per an ANI report, a Rs 5,000 fine will be imposed on violators. On March 30, the chairperson had directed that a meeting be held after the UP government informed the Tribunal about its willingness to discuss the scenario of shifting tanneries outside Kanpur. This is contrary to the stand of the previous government, under Samajwadi Party, which had submitted through former advocate general Vijay Bahadur Singh that paucity of land and dependence of lakhs on the tannery cluster made shifting difficult. A year after assuming office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged his ministerial colleagues and  three chief ministers to adopt an "uncompromising mission-mode approach" to halt pollution of River Ganga. Already in January this year, the PM had directed the ...
