The Supreme Court has suspended the NGT order directing the Andhra Pradesh government to deposit 100 crore rupees with the Central Pollution Control Board for inaction to prevent illegal sand mining.

In the interest of natural justice, the apex court allowed the state government to place its perspective before the National Green Tribunal, NGT with regard to illegal sand mining.

The Andhra Pradesh government has claimed that it was not granted an opportunity to be heard by the green tribunal before the order was passed.

A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and Hemant Gupta in its recent order said that it is permitting Andhra Pradesh to move an appropriate application before the NGT within two weeks.

On April 4th, the tribunal while asking the state to deposit 100 crore rupees with the CPCB within a month, directed the chief secretary to forthwith prohibit all unregulated sand mining.
