rainwater harvesting systemsThe National Green Tribunal (NGT) has  issued directions to all the private and government schools and colleges in Delhi to install rainwater harvesting systems on their premises. This has to be done within two months.

Any institution not adhering to this rule will have to shell out Rs 5 lakh as fine.

The Tribunal had a joint inspection team which consisted of  senior officials from the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA), representatives from the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) and the Directorate of Education.

The Tribunal will now issue  fitness certificate only when  the rainwater harvesting systems will be made operational in these schools and colleges.

Those who have been exempted by NGT will have to pay an environmental compensation, “which shall be compensated by installing rainwater harvesting systems in the area.”
