National Green Tribunal’s Role and Contributions

Only biodegradable Ganesha idols can be immersed : NGT


  1. NGT passed a series of directions to make sure Yamuna is not choked with hazardous chemicals during the festive season.
  2. NGT directed that only bio-degradable material idols would be allowed for immersion and not plastic/ Plaster of Paris.
  3. Immersion of idols puts a load on the rivers and can defeat revitalisation plan of the NGT, if the civic agencies concerned do not keep a check.
  4. The Delhi govt. has also been asked to provide mobile toilets/ bio-toilets at these sites.
