Delay in removal of Maradu debris  

Four Apartment buildings were demolished in Manadu, Cochin after a long negotiations and the debris remains to be removed even after 45 days. National Green Tribunal took suo motu cognizance of the delay in removal of steel and concrete waste from the four sites. The state level committee on solid waste management submitted its report stating that process of segregation and removal of debris was not at the expected pace.

Encroachment of Foot-Paths

As a follow up action to a Resolution passed by the 7th NCRWA, Sri. T.V. Nageswara Rao who moved the Resolution has forwarded the interim status-report on 9th March.
1. Accordingly, a letter is finalized after consultations to be sent to the State Governments and to other urban authorities. This is largely inspired by the views expressed by Prof. B.R.Santa and a letter sent by Col. Tejandra Pal Tyagi, Convenor, CoRWA to the Govt. of UP. 
2.On an earlier reference from the Convenor, CoRWA, the Dept. of Housing & Urban Affairs, GoI has responded that the issue comes under State List, and suggested to approach the State Govts. 
3.Accordingly, a drafted letter was sent to all CoRWA office bearers and in response Sri JMS Nagarjunan, Chennai, has responded with a suggestion. Later, he was requested to send the letter to his State Govt, duly incorporating his suggestion. As of now, no other individual or forum has responded on the issue, though considerable time has elapsed since.
4.Further, with regard to AP & TS, It was understood that the letters will be sent to the concerned departments by either CoRWA or the concerned U-FERWAS and APFERWAS.  However, this aspect of the action taken at their end is still to be confirmed. Individual members may not be able to take that much interest, on the issue, by virtue of several factors.
5.In view of the above factual situation, it is felt that the CoRWA itself should send the letters addressed to all the State authorities in the country, from its side to deal with such common public issue.
