NGT quashes green nod for Ultratech Cement's two mining sitesIn a major setback to the cement major, Ultratech Cement, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has quashed environment clearances (ECs) for its two limestone mining sites in Babarkot village of Jafrabad taluka in Amreli district in the state of Gujarat.

In its order dated 21 February 2021, the special bench of NGT ruled that the project fell under category ‘A’ and was beyond the purview of the State Environment Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA) to grant environment clearances.

NGT has advised the company to seek the necessary clearances from the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC).
