NGT's reprimand leaves Kisan union red-faced in Punjab

"Instead of taking a conflicting stance and promoting stubble burning, farmer unions should act responsibly and must come forward to help the state government in finding alternatives to stubble burning", said the NGT bench. According to a Punjab government survey, there are almost 18 lakh farm household in Punjab, out of which almost 10.25 lakh farmers own just one to two hectares of land.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday sent notices to the Union Environment and Agriculture Ministries seeking details on the financial support sought by Punjab government to incentivise its farmers against stubble burning. Addressing the farmers, the union leaders argued that while the NGT had banned stubble burning, the state government was yet to announce any kind of financial aid for the farmers to help them use the stubble instead of burning it , As Reported By Tribune.

"It is not just for the government to deal with the problem". This rebate though has one more catch as these vehicles can now only ply in neighbouring areas of Delhi but will not be allowed to enter the Delhi border. "Vehicles being used by public authorities, agencies working under patrolling companies and other essential products, would be permitted to register in NCT Delhi for carrying on statutory functions", said the green panel. He said that the farmers were also expecting that the government should chip in Rs 200 per quintal as compensation for the farmers for managing crop residue.

Summary: He said in the southern states, where there was no wheat cultivation and wheat stubble was not available, dairy farmers used paddy stubble as animal fodder. "Our expense will increase if we don't burn stubble; our land will not be ready for sowing and the cropping season will get delayed", said a protesting farmer, and added that government should pay them compensation to cover their losses.
