NGT directed state govts to Act against farmers who burn crops in open

The National Green Tribunal on Wednesday asked Delhi and four northern states to notify steps to check the menace of crop burning and imposed a fine on farmers indulging in such activities. This step was taken out of concern over high pollution level and smog engulfing the Capital. The green panel imposed fines ranging from Rs 2,500 to Rs 15,000 on farmers indulging in burning of agricultural residues as it was a serious issue which contributed to global warming and environmental pollution.

The states which have been asked to issue notifications are Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Delhi. The NGT said if any state has already issued such a notification, then it should ensure its proper compliance sincerely. "The burning of agriculture remains is a serious issue contributing towards global warming and pollution. You all are putting the life of people and children at danger and they are getting sick. You cannot allow them to suffer," a bench, headed by NGT chairperson Swatanter Kumar, said.
