SC appoints retired judge to monitor stubble burning in Punjab, H'yana, UP

The Supreme Court on Monday asked the governments of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh to hold meetings with all stakeholders to completely stop stubble burning that converts the entire Delhi-NCR into a virtual gas chamber during October-November.

A Bench led by Justice Arun Mishra asked the three states to file their respective report before it in four weeks. The top court—which is seized of a PIL on air pollution in NCR—sought to know from Punjab Chief Secretary if the state can assure that no stubble burning will take place this year.
