Clearing work at Matrimandir, violation of RA processes and NGT court order.

A large area inside the MM fence is being cleared. According to information received, this is to clear rubble from the area of the future / planned Matrimandir lake. No permissions that follow due process have been given for any projects or clearing in the Matrimandir area. The lake does not have permission from either the planning authority of Auroville, nor has it gone through the valid and agreed RA process for permission.Clearing and removal of trees, and proceeding with excavation works, is explicitly going against the judgement of the NGT .
