Written arguments on behalf of Bharat Kumar Jain for the protection and preservation of the ecological area of Mount Abu, situated in the Aravalli range in Rajasthan.

In terms of the notification of Eco-sensitive zone of Mount Abu, various construction activities were absolutely prohibited and accordingly when it was observed that under the garb of renovation various construction activities were going on by the politically and financially influential people, the application was filed, raising a substantial question relating to the environment.

It has been observed that various commercial activities over the agricultural lands, felling of trees and the construction activities were still persisting.

The applicant requests for direction to be issued to the concerned authorities to ensure that  no construction activities whatsoever may be permitted in or around the Eco-Sensitive Zone of Mount Abu and to keep the area protected and preserved which should be in the interest of justice and the interest of the environment at large.
