The State Government of Telangana and the National Green Tribunal has selected Jagannadapuram in Elakathurthy Mandal, Kannur in Kamalapur Mandal and Kannaram in Velair mandal as well as Warangal city to make them compliant with environmental norms by 31 October 2019. District Collector Prashanth J. Patil has further advised people to pay heed to their surroundings to ensure a better future for the next generation.
The National Green Tribunal has jurisdiction over all civil cases where a substantial question relating to environment is involved, and such questions arise out of the implementation of the enactments specified in Schedule 1 of the National Green Tribunal Act 2010. The Tribunal deals with all the environmental laws on air and water pollution, the Environment Protection Act, the Forest Conservation Act and the Biodiversity Act.
The Gram Panchayat officials were further informed to act towards those who cut down trees in the villages. Mr. Patil said, that the State government has also laid down a plan to release funds based on the population of each gram panchayat. Further responsibilities on the civic body and the residents are being communicated to keep their village clean and green.
Part of the environment-friendly initiative is to set up dumping yards, composite pits, segregate garbage into wet and dry and to collect the same from every household with the help of around 163 garbage rickshaws and 400 garbage trolley collecting over 300 metric tonnes of waste in the city. Furthermore, under Swachh Bharat mission, separate dustbins for collecting dry and wet waste will be given to every household, and workers who will collect the garbage from the households would also be provided with all the basic amenities.
Plastic bags and covers will also fall under the extensive resolution by the State Government, and business establishments are advised to display notices notifying that the use of plastic has been banned and customers are advised to bring their own fabric or paper bags. Small shops possessing plastic covers are to be fined ₹5,000, with Liquor stores being handed an even bigger fine of ₹25,000. To avoid the use of plastic completely, special drives are taking place throughout the city, with the Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC) collecting fines of more than ₹1.55 lakhs already.
