Ban on construction

Yesterday Honble Supreme Court banned construction in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Chandigarh as these states still dont have a Waste Management Policy.

Thought these Swachh Bharat circles were instrumental in developing Center’s Waste Management Policy. Why cant they adopt the same and Move on?

Why doesnt Ministry of Urban Development Rural Development and Environment not take a more active role in communicating centers policies for state adoption?? more

Supreme Court can ban anything, but can not enforce the Swachha Bharat. That is possible only through public awareness. Public are conscious, but the Local Body authorities are yet to wake up from the slumber. They are swindling away the money. How to stop that ???? more  
Banning construction will not serve any purpose but will add more worries as huge stock of construction workers will become jobless which will have cascading effect on their families. People responsible should be penalized and taken to task if need be. The ban should be lifted immediately. The construction sector till recently was contributing 5 to 6 percent of GDP which have come down to all time low for various administrative reasons. Now, banning construction activities will severely effect the construction and other related industries. more  
This step of the Supreme Court punishes the victim and not the culprit which happens to be the State Government which could have easily adopted the Waste Management Policy adopted by other State Govt. or proposed by the Swatcha Bharat Local Circle.

Supreme Court’s cancellation of all the Licenses for mining of Coal be cancelled for the reason that grant of the Licenses was based on untenable grounds (First-come-
served) instead of the Licenses being auctioned. This caused irreparable damage to Beneficiaries of the Licenses, the Banks which lent to them besides the employees, the transporters employed, the Sub-contractors etc. Even though the grant of the Licenses per se was not tenable, cancellation of the Licenses caused too much damage. The beneficiaries of the Licenses could have been ordered to pay some fairly heavy penalty instead of their Licenses being cancelled.

The Supreme Court should lay it down as a Guideline to be complied with by all Courts including itself that no Order, Judgement, or, preferably even Observation should cause collateral damage or suffering. Otherwise the Government could pass a Law debarring Courts including the Supreme Court from passing such Orders or Judgements. more  
As we all know that every material/ product after wear and tear becomes waste, the govt should impose a charge an amount towsrds waste dispial/ recycling once the product is sold or produced. This may be a part of gst (?). Otherwise we shout when it is out of control (like plastic , automobile n many others fir which we dont have appropriate disposal/ recycling norms). Good day ! more  
States have failed to formulate SWM policies but in Mumbai policy is already implemented for dumping SWM wastes. Whether Mumbai is excluded from SC's 31-08-2018 Order? more
