Order of the Supreme Court of India regarding expansion of the capacity of the waste to energy plant at Okhla, Delhi, 05/04/2023
Order of the Supreme Court in the matter of Ravinder Chanana & Others Vs State of Delhi, Delhi Secretariat Chief Secretary & Others dated 05/04/2023.
The matter related to expansion of the capacity of the waste to energy plant at Okhla from 23 MW to 40 MW.
The Supreme Court refused to stay the proposed expansion of the Okhla waste to energy plant (WTE). The apex court took the stand in view of the statement made by the plant operator that the process of expansion and operationalising the plant to the enhanced capacity would take about 18 months.
"Any steps which are taken by the concessioner towards implementing the permission for enhancement of the capacity from 23 MW to 40 MW shall be subject to the final result of the appeal and shall not create any equities," the SC order, April 5, 2023 said.
