The Delhi High Court on Wednesday granted three months' time to all the civic agencies of the Capital to complete the process of removing concrete from the area around the trees in the city. Disposing of a PIL that pointed out that trees on pavements in the city were falling because their roots had become weak due to concretisation of pavements, the court asked the agencies to act within the time allotted to them.
According to the status report submitted by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Wednesday, of the total 9,395 trees to be de-concretised, work on 5,223 trees has been completed.
On the other hand, the New Delhi Municipal Council counsel told the court that they had already completed 80 per cent of the work.
The Delhi Development Authority, however, was pulled up by the court for not filing its status report and the court gave the agency a last opportunity to do so.
