• The Delhi High Court Order: The Delhi High Court was approached because there were gross violations of the Delhi Preservation Of Trees Act and the Union Urban Ministry Guidelines. The Court has given a very favourable verdict and if the order of the Court is violated the Court an be approached and the matter taken up.
  • The Union Urban Ministry Guidelines applies to all cities and municipalities. Since concrete pavements are not good for avenue trees, these guidelines have been passed to avoid unnecessary construction work in vicinity of trees. It also has other useful points concerning urban greens. It had been sent to every state govt. and union territories for followup and action. If guidelines are flouted (as is the case many a times), it can be taken up with officials. An attempt is being made to get these guidelines passed as a law under the EPA 1986
