New Delhi: Builders who dump construction material on roads will have to pay a fine of Rs 50,000, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) said today.

The green panel also noted that waste burning in open is a very serious issue and held that the violators will have to pay an environmental compensation at the rate of Rs 5,000 per event.

"We direct that builders who keep their dust, sand, cement, brick and other construction materials on the public place and road, as per the directions of the tribunal already issued, would not be permitted to do so.

"Besides, seizing such materials under the provision of the Municipal Corporation Act of the Delhi, they would be liable to pay environmental compensation at the rate of Rs 50,000 per incident as already directed," a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar said.

The tribunal said that even the construction material which is stored within the building should be covered and it should be ensured that there is no emission and it does not disperse into the atmosphere.

"This will also apply to transportation of construction materials. These directions will be applicable to NCR Delhi. All the authorities may file list of offenders before January 6, the next date of hearing," the bench said while directing authorities to issue public notice.
