The tribunal said government agencies have failed to implement its order to remove debris and encroachment from the Delhi ridge and settle forest rights of local people. The tribunal termed the efforts made by these agencies an eyewash.

“It is a shocking state of affairs that since 1994 forest rights or the forest areas in Delhi have not been settled by any authority... The response to the question of settlement of rights of citizens is completely silent, vague and uncertain in terms,” the tribunal said.
