The National Green Tribunal has directed the Delhi government to immediately shut down 4,774 industrial units running in residential areas. Delhi Chief Secretary, however, told the NGT that show cause procedure is unnecessary in view of the orders of the Supreme Court. "Thus, show-cause notice to 4,774 was wrongly issued instead of straightway such units being closed," the NGT noted.
