NGT in its Order states that the question facing them at this stage is as to whether MOEF OM No. J-11013/1/2013- IA-1 dated 28.5.2013 has been complied with or not before environment and forest clearances had been granted for the project since the OM stipulates that before completion of the study on carrying capacity of river basin no such clearance can be granted.
