Tuticorin plant row: NGT declines interim relief to Vedanta
Updated : July 31, 2018 06:33 AM IST
A bench headed by NGT chairperson A K Goel allowed the state government to file its reply on Vedanta's plea by August 9, when it will next hear the matter.
The senior advocate, while seeking tribunal's permission to enter the premises, said there was leakage of sulphuric acid from the factory, which had to be taken care of since it may lead to some disaster.
On July 5, the tribunal had issued notices to the state government and the pollution board seeking their responses after Tamil Nadu raised preliminary objection with regard to the maintainability of Vedanta's plea.
