Environment Ministry panel defers proposal to expand south Delhi mall

It said some other environment conditions were also non-complied with and information/action plans have been sought from the developer.

An environment ministry panel has deferred approval to a proposal to expand a popular south Delhi mall as it has not specified from where it was drawing freshwater to the project.

The Expert Appraisal Committee noted there were some non-compliances of environment conditions in the Rs 32-crore project to expand the Select Citywalk shopping centre in Saket by 10,000 sq metres taking the total built-up area to 1.18 lakh sq metres.

Deferring the environment clearance, the committee said "after detailed deliberation" it has asked the project developer to submit the "source of water from where it is drawing and supplying fresh water to the proposed project. In case of ground water withdrawal, submit requisite NOC/Clearance from Central Ground Water Authority."
