Bengaluru: The National Green Tribunal on Tuesday lambasted the state government and civic stakeholders for not doing enough to restore the Bellandur Lake, and directed them to prepare a working plan for rejuvenating the waterbody.

Thiruvananthapuram: Non-woven polypropylene bags continue to be used 23.8.2017
Thiruvananthapuram: A leading retail shop on MG Road, from which plastic carry bags were repeatedly seized after the ban, continues to give out non-woven polypropylene big shoppers to customers.  There have been three raids, but that has not deterred them from using plastic carry bags, nor has it encouraged the use of cloth or paper bags. Many other city retailers, which used to give out polyethylene bags have now gone to nonwoven polypropylene bags. This could be out of ignorance, as the texture of nonwoven polypropylene closely resembles cloth. But in the case of shops where raids were conducted, Corporation officials had talked to the managements and shopkeepers about non-woven polypropylene. No fine was charged on the shop on MG Road, according to officials, as the waste management bylaw is yet to be in place.  But according to health standing committee chair K. Sreekumar, it was charged a hefty fine above Rs 5000.  "We have taken note of it, and will take sterner action the ...

Conservationists and citizens point out that the government should now stop fooling people about the rejuvenation of Bellandur lake and make its reports on the progress on reviving the lake public.
