GUWAHATI: The National Green Tribunal (NGT), New Delhi has ordered the Assam Government to declare Deepor Beel, including its adjacent sanctuary, an eco-sensitive zone. The Tribunal has stopped forthwith the ‘change in land utilization character from railway gate number 273 to the starting point of northern alignment of railway track and Azara railway crossing at Segunbari, Mikirpara and Matia elephant corridor’ in order to ensure that the elephant corridor is kept free for elephants’ access to the Deepor Beel and also to avoid man-elephant conflict.

On solid waste management, the Tribunal said that it would be appropriate for the State to plan a decentralized processing plant at a suitable location in the city as a support system for the proposed integrated solid waste management plant.

The Tribunal has also told the State government to incorporate the old waste of the existing dumping ground at Boragaon in the proposed comprehensive solid waste management plant.
