#NGT seeks details of borewells installed by #DMRC

The NGT today directed Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to furnish a list of borewells it has installed and the quantity of water extracted by it, following charges that it was extracting groundwater instead of using waste water to wash its trains. A bench headed by Justice Jawad Rahim also directed Delhi Metro to inform the green panel whether they have installed water meters in their depots for extraction of ground water. It asked DMRC to submit the details before March 20 and said that in the event of failure to file the information, it would impose a cost of Rs two lakh on it.
