Noida: 13 builders told to pay fines in one week over illegal groundwater extraction

Dated on: Wednesday 23rd August 2023

Thirteen builders have been notified by the groundwater department, with a stipulated period of seven days, to halt their unlawful extraction of groundwater and to remit a fine of Rs 5 lakh each. This action has been prompted by the builders' non-compliance with previous notices issued by the department. These earlier notifications had instructed the builders to settle the charges for their unauthorized utilization of groundwater, conducted without the necessary permissions. Despite receiving these notifications, the builders persisted in drawing water for construction activities through their unapproved borewells.
