New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday stuck to its order of maintaining status quo on a stretch of land along river Gomti, in Lucknow, which was converted from green belt in the Master Plan 2021 to residential use.

LUCKNOW: The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Friday restrained the state authorities from proceeding further with the construction of any permanent structure within 100 metres of the Gomti riverbed.

The year 2010 has brought new hope for the Gomti river, the lifeline of Lucknow. The river, which is a major source of drinking water for over 32 lakh people, is polluted the most in its 14-km stretch in the state capital, owing to millions of litres of untreated domestic waste that is released in it daily. In the next few months, things will change for the better.

LUCKNOW: Could NBRI be dumping radioactive waste in Gomti directly through its sewage system? Knowing that radioactive material can induce cancer, birth defects and infertility in humans directly exposed to it, releasing it in Gomti is a huge big ecological disaster.

A proposal to this effect was cleared by the Lucknow Development Authority's Board along with 18 others in its meeting held here on Thursday.
