A notice has been issued by the Supreme Court in matter regarding the rampant illegal and unauthorized bio-medical waste burning that is being carried out in South Delhi. Such an illegal act is consequently creating severe risk for the health of the people residing in the adjacent area as well as increasing the deterioration of the air quality in the city.
