Vision document on Taj Mahal should take into account pollution in TTZ: SC

NSD Logo
The Supreme Court today said the vision document on protection and preservation of the Taj Mahal in Agra should be prepared taking into account issues like pollution in the Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ) and industries operating there.

 The TTZ is an area of about 10,400 sq km spread over the districts of Agra, Firozabad, Mathura, Hathras and Etah in Uttar Pradesh and Bharatpur district of Rajasthan.

 A bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur said authorities should look into the larger perspective while dealing with the issue of protection of Taj Mahal.
 The Uttar Pradesh government told the court that they will respond to the Centre's communication within a month.

 The Centre also apprised the bench that Archaeological Survey of India was in the process of preparing a heritage plan for Taj Mahal and the same would be filed with the UNESCO within three months.

The bench has posted the matter for further hearing on the 25th of September.
