SC gives its nod to construction of ongoing projects under Chardham development plan

January 11, 2019 13:36


The Supreme Court on Friday gave its nod to ongoing projects under the government's ambitious Chardham development plan, which proposes to provide all-weather connectivity to the four holy towns of Uttarakhand.
   
The top court, however, said the construction of  stalled projects under the plan will remain stayed till further orders.
 
A bench of justices R F Nariman and Vineet Saran asked the Centre to file its affidavit on a plea to stay the National Green Tribunal order which had cleared the projects and set up a committee to oversee it.
 
The Chardham project intends to connect four towns of the hilly state, Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath, by all-weather roads. -- PTI
