Aravallis to be delineated in entire NCR

IANS  |  New Delhi 

Forests in the NCR should be identified as per the orders of the Supreme and the Aravallis are to be delineated in the entire area, an official statement said on Monday.

"Accordingly, the work on natural conservation zones (NCZ) delineation needs to be expeditiously finalized by National Capital Region's (NCR) participating states," said statement issued by Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry.

The announcement came following reports that Haryana government seeks to limit "Aravallis" to only the stretches in Gurugram leaving out out large parts in Faridabad and other districts from any kind of protective regulation.

The decision to delineate Aravallis in the entire NCR was taken in the meeting of the National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) chaired by Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri.

During the meeting, Puri said the provisions and policies of the Regional Plan need to be followed in letter and spirit.

He said while functional plans for NCR on economic development and drainage were released by the board in 2016, states needed to be forthcoming to benefit from those plans, and should prepare and implement projects and programs in line with the same.
