The National Green Tribunal was informed by the Centre it will take a maximum of three months to execute the action of the plan for 37 railway stations which are t be developed as “eco-smart stations”.
The Centre told a bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, to supervise the implementation of environmental management systems at the 37 stations railway administration has placed nodal officers.
Pinky Anand, the additional Solicitor General told the sources, “They will also act as regulators for environment norms and will have authority to lay down and collect compensation on ‘Polluter Pays’ principle. They will be authorized to issue receipts for the compensation so recovered. This mechanism will be put on the website.”
The tribunal said, “The action plans may have categories for number of stations for different phases but all the major stations should be covered within one year on the pattern of 37 major stations already identified.”
“We also expect that de-centralized municipal solid waste plants may be set up at the identified locations in terms of Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016. The Executive Director, Environment and Health Management (ENHM), Railway Headquarters, may compile the progress of execution of action plans periodically and also lay down adverse consequences for the nodal officers or others who fail to execute the action plans within the targeted timeline by way of entry into their annual reports,” it added.
“If the CPCB finds that action plan has been duly implemented and selected railway stations are meeting the parameters of ISO 14001, such stations may be certified as eco-smart stations,” the tribunal further added.
