The tribunal directed the corporation to strictly adhere to the action plan for taking steps to dispose of the waste and warned, "It is made clear that the amount of Rs 25 lakh will stand forfeited in the case of default and may be recovered from the erring officers of the corporation".
The green panel directed the commissioner of the municipal corporation to file a compliance affidavit within a month.
The green panel was hearing a plea filed by environmentalist Vivek Kamboj and Amit Chaudhary, alleging that the municipal corporations of Gurgaon and Faridabad were disposing industrial waste and construction debris in these forest areas.
Kamboj had referred to a media report which said construction debris were found dumped in the forest and quoted a local resident as saying that several vehicles dumped waste there every Sunday morning.
