Kerala High Court lifts stay on NGT order imposing fine of ₹1 crore on Cochin Corporation for issues at Brahmapuram waste dump

The Court vacated the stay on the basis of a report submitted by a high-level committee that had inspected the site and stated that the basic requirements for handling solid waste, are unavailable.

In view of the fire that recently broke out at the Brahmapuram waste dump, the Kerala High Court on Monday lifted its stay on an order of the National Green Tribunal that had slapped a fine of ₹1 crore on the Cochin Municipal Corporation for its delay in setting up a waste treatment plant at the site in accordance with the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016.
