The National Green Tribunal on November 21 ordered INR 6,000 crore Chromeni Steels to stop all activities in its steel plant in Gujarat’s Mundra block in Kutchh district. NGT order said “Considering the fact that EC is necessary under Environment Impact Assessment Notification 2006, which was also our prima facie view held earlier, we direct the respondent industry to stop its activities until clarification is received from the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.”
Environment activist Mr Gajendra Singh Jadeja in a petition had said “We had approached all the authorities to take action against the project that was started without clearances. Even though government notices were issues, construction work continued unabated. How can a project that has a production capacity of 700,000 tonnes of steel production function without getting an EC?”
After the project got the consent on January 20, 2018, the foundation was laid by the Gujarat chief minister along with other ministers on January 23.
