Supreme Court Order Staying Further Constructions In States/Union Territories Until Solid Waste Management Policy Is Framed

The Supreme Court has in order dated 31st August 2018 stayed further constructions in the States/Union Territories until the Solid Waste Management Policy is framed.

The Supreme Court held that it is unfortunate that some States and Union Territories have not yet framed any Policy under the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016.

It was pointed out by the Supreme Court that in case the States have the interest of the people in mind and cleanliness and sanitation, they should frame a Policy in terms of the Solid Waste Management Rules so that the States remain clean.

It was held by the Supreme Court that the attitude of the States/Union Territories in not yet framing a Policy even after two years is pathetic, to say the least.
