The National Green Tribunal has asked Haryana authorities to submit a fresh plan for revival of extinct water bodies in Faridabad.

The order was passed by a bench headed by Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel on Thursday.

The tribunal was hearing a plea by Narendar Singh Yadav and Gaurav Jain on water bodies in Faridabad going dry.

During the hearing, the state government told the bench that there are 76 extinct water bodies in the city and 22 will be revived by 2022.

The remaining 54 could not be revived as the authorities concerned have allocated the pieces of land to industries, WAQF board and others, it said.

Taking a serious view of the matter, the tribunal cited a November 25,  2019 order of the Supreme Court which said dried-up water bodies cannot be allotted to industries.

It directed the Haryana authorities to submit a report on the plan to revive water bodies within three months.

“Water bodies are at the lowest point of any area, how can you make a cemetery over it?” NGT asked government of Haryana.

Faridabad district has been marked as a dark zone by the Central Ground Water Board (CGWB) on account of depletion of ground water.
