Supreme Court sets aside interim order passed by National Green Tribunal (“NGT”) against stone crushers on the ground of audi alteram partem
M/s Shree Ganesh Stone Crusher & Ors. v. State of Haryana & Ors.; Order dated 02 November 20201
A three judge bench comprising of Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, Justice Navin Sinha and Justice Krishna Murari set aside an interim order passed by the NGT. The NGT order had called for prosecution and compensation proceedings to be initiated against stone crushers in Haryana for damaging the environment. Observing that none of the parties have been heard by the NGT, the Bench set aside the NGT order on this ground alone and remanded the matter to the NGT to dispose of the matter as soon as possible preferably within four weeks from the date of the order. The Court granted liberty to all the parties to argue their matter before the NGT.
