The Uttarakhand High Court on Thursday put on hold the Centre’s decision to stop work on NTPC’s 600 MW Lohari-Nagpala hydel project on Bhagirathi river in Uttarakhand.

A Nainital division bench comprising Justice P C Pant and B S Verma granted an interim relief on a petition filed by Rural and Litigation Entitlement Kendra (RLEK), a Dehra Dun-based NGO, which had sought immediate resumption of work on the hydel project which was suspended by Centre last week.

“Through this order, work on Lohari-Nagpala will resume and continue till the Ganga River Basin Authority, which was notified last week, takes any decision on the issue”, Kartikey Hari Gupta, the counsel for RLEK said.
