Stubble Burning: Supreme Court Agrees To Request After Centre Assures Law

The one-man committee to oversee steps to tackle stubble burning was suspended by the Supreme Court today as the Centre said it would create a permanent body through legislation to deal with annual air pollution problem in Delhi and its surrounding areas.

On October 16, the Supreme Court had appointed retired judge Justice Madan B Lokur to monitor stubble burning in Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh — a key source of the pollution every winter. At the time, the court had declined to accept the Centre’s request to reconsider the appointment.

Today, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who was representing the government, told the court that the new legislation will be brought within three or four days and asked the court to suspend the Lokur Committee.
