National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) to submit a report on constitution of Biodiversity Management Committees (BMC) at the local level in every state within three months. 

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel also asked the states who have not constituted the committees to file an affidavit stating the reason for the delay.

During the hearing, a monitoring committee formed by the tribunal informed it that as against 2,52,709 panchayats where Biodiversity Management Committees were to be constituted a total of 1,44,371 BMCs have been formed, which shows a gap of more than one lakh. 

With respect to People Biodiversity Registers, 6,834 have been documented so far and another 1,814 are in progress, it noted. The tribunal on August 8 last year had directed a monitoring committee comprising officials from the Ministry of Environment and Forests and National Biodiversity Authority to furnish a report.
