Yamuna Cleanup Deadline

Supreme Court Gives Delhi 2 Years For Yamuna Clean Up - A New Deadline

Expressing Shock over the Delhi Government's failure to provide clean water to the capital's 1.38 crore (13.8 Million) people, the Supreme Court fixed March 31, 2003 as the deadline for making the Yamuna pollution-free.

Referring to the presence of the jhuggis, which contributed to river pollution, the bench pulled up the government for not removing them from public land. The bench also queried the Urban Development Ministry on it's 5-point action plan to clean the Yamuna. It said that the ministry should inform the court about the manner in which it can be implemented.

The bench directed the Delhi chief secretary to file an affidavit detailing steps to be taken to improve the quality of the river so that it could no longer be called maili (dirty) Yamuna after March 31, 2003. The case has it's origin in the suo motu notice the Supreme Court took of a report published by the Hindustan Times on the pollution of the Yamuna. The Yamuna cleanup effort by the Yamuna Foundation was also published in India Abroad newspaper a few times and have caused public awareness of this serious pollution problem.

More details are in Hindustan Times (April 10, 2001).
