HSPCB chief to NAREDCO: Suggest norms to obviate omnibus ban on construction activities
Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) Chairman P Raghavendra Rao on November 29 urged the National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO) to come up with a model code for pollution control so that feasible construction (read, non-polluting) activities are not banned by the government during winters when pollution levels shoot up to alarming levels.
Since health is a very important issue and cannot be neglected, developers should come up with solutions supported by research/ data, which when adopted will not lead to higher levels of pollution.
His remarks came at NAREDCO’s day-long Haryana Real Estate Summit 2022 in Gurugram where developers voiced their concerns over the ban on construction activities. A one-month ban on construction leads to a delay of 3-4 months in the delivery of projects, he said.
