Category: Andhrapradesh

The National Green Tribunal (NGT), which heard the petition about leakage and oil pipeline blasts in the KG Basin, issued notice to the Government of Andhra Pradesh, District Collector of Krishna, District Collector of Godavari, and the defendants. The Tribunal has set up an expert committee to research the rate of emissions in the KG Basin and the committee will deliver the findings in two months.

The case reached the NGT after the petitioner Venkatapati Raja, who comes from East Godavari's Sakhinetipalli village, moved the court claiming that the oil leakage and pipeline explosions in the basin result in loss of life and property damage. The committee includes members from the Central Environment Ministry, the Central Pollution Control Board, collectors from the Krishna-Godavari district, and the professor of the Department of Petroleum Engineering at Andhra University.
