The Bombay High Court on Wednesday upheld the 'stop work' orders of the environment ministry to Lavasa Corporation for its Lake City project near Pune for violating green laws.

The court directed the ministry to take a final decision by Jan 10.

Lavasa can, however, challenge the final decision of the ministry if it is aggrieved by it, the court said.

The ministry Nov 25 slapped a show-cause notice on the company because it had allegedly failed to secure necessary environmental clearances before starting work on its 5,000-plus hectare project coming up in Mulshi sub-district of Pune district, around 200 km from Mumbai.
