Bengaluru: The National Green Tribunal (NGT) passed several directions to state authorities regarding the lakes in Bengaluru.

The NGT has instructed the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) to issue directions to all the apartment complexes that are currently discharging sewage into Bellandur and Varthur lakes to set up STPs within the available space.

The NGT has directed the pollution board to maintain a strict vigil and to prevent release of industrial effluents into Bellandur, Agara and Varthur lakes.

It has asked the state government to send a detailed report of all the activities happening in order to prevent and protect the water bodies in Bengaluru.

The state government has been asked to physically remove dry floating grass on the lakes which is the reason for the fire in the lake.

State agencies have to submit their first compliance reports during the NGT’s next hearing on February 28.
