The National Green Tribunal (NGT) directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to deposit Rs 50 lakh as performance guarantee for its failure in cleaning the Yamuna River and to protect the environment. The NGT also asked the DDA to deposit the amount within two weeks and warned that in case of failure it would summon its vice chairman. NGT said that the failure of DDA is affecting life and health of citizens. It also threatens the existence of a major river like Yamuna, NGT further added.
