The National Green Tribunal has refrained from levying environmental compensation of Rs 109 crore on Meghalaya, noting that the state had already committed the requisite funds for solid and liquid waste management. The NGT is monitoring compliance with Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016, and other environmental issues by states and Union territories. A bench comprising Chairperson Justice A K Goel said there were gaps in solid and liquid waste generation and treatment.
