New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday gave its nod to ongoing projects under the government’s ambitious Chardham development plan, which proposes to provide all-weather connectivity to the four holy towns of Uttarakhand.
The top court, however, said the construction of stalled projects under the plan will remain stayed till further orders.
A bench of Justices R.F. Nariman and Vineet Saran asked the Centre to file its affidavit on a plea to stay the National Green Tribunal (NGT) order which had cleared the projects and set up a committee to oversee it.
The Chardham project intends to connect four towns of the hilly state – Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath – by all-weather roads.
