Expressing anguish at the tardy progress in cleaning River Yamuna, the Supreme Court on Tuesday appointed an expert committee to find out what has been achieved in the past 18 years since the Yamuna Action Plan was initiated.

A bench of justices Swatanter Kumar and Madan B Lokur also asked the two-member committee to examine the feasibility of blocking the drains that discharge untreated water into the river and submit its report by November 9. The committee comprises a member each from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and Delhi Jal Board (DJB).

It also asked the Centre to submit minutes of the Yamuna River Development Authority meetings.
