Taking stern action against errant polluting industries, the National Green Tribunal (NGT), on Friday, imposed a fine of Rs.10 lakh each on three industrial units in Uttar Pradesh for discharge of untreated effluents and abstraction of groundwater without permission. Along with the fines, the three units have to close down operations until further orders of the Tribunal.

The survey was held across 434 cities. While Indore and Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh topped the list as the cleanest cities, Delhi, under the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), slipped to the seventh position.
