NEW DELHI: The real estate sector could be in for more trouble with the Supreme Court on Friday saying that they cannot build without first getting environment clearances.
The office memo cannot overrule an earlier notification to get clearances first, the tribunal had said. The Supreme Court on Friday agreed with the tribunal. Chief Justice of India T.S. Thakur slammed builders all over India for not respecting law and building and selling first, and later getting the clearances.
Earlier, CJI H L Dattu had stayed the tribunal order. But CJI Thakur said he would review this order next Friday.
