Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Prof. Imtiaz Ahmed & Ors. Vs. State of NCT of Delhi & Ors. dated 20/12/2017 regarding demarcation of the Ridge forest land.

NGT clearly states that the process of demarcation as given in the ‘Schedule of Demarcation’ pertinently envisages the comprehensive demarcation with TSM (Total Satellite Machine) by providing exact boundary description and maps of the ridge area/ forest land in relation to the forest land in three villages i.e. Ranpuri, Rajokari and Ghitorni in Vasant Vihar Sub division, Delhi. The regime thus prescribed for process needs to be strictly followed otherwise it will open flood gates of claims and counter claims by all concerned parties particularly the parties having lands adjoining ridge area/forest lands in the said three villages.
