Why Rs 1 cr fine shouldn’t be slapped over non-compliance of NGT order: CPCB to Nayara Energy

The CPCB has asked oil firm Nayara Energy why a fine of Rs one crore should not be slapped on it and prosecution not initiated over non-compliance of the NGT order on installation of anti-pollution vapour recovery systems at fuel stations.
