The NGT was hearing three separate petitions filed by activists and NGOs seeking stay on felling of trees and the scrapping of environmental clearance given to the project.

One of the petitioners, Anil Sood, president of the NGO Society for Protection of Culture, Heritage, Environment, Traditions and Promotion of National Awareness, said the Centre has given clearance to the projects without considering several factors such as existing population density and the impact of cutting trees on ambient air quality in the area.

The Delhi high court, which had earlier put a stay on felling of trees, is likely to hear the matter on Wednesday.
