Value in unvalued trees





Wanton destruction of trees is commonplace in India by the state, by builders, industries and even godmen of all kinds. It is, therefore, significant that Mr Justice Rajasekhar Mantha of the Calcutta High Court chose to describe the act as a “heinous crime” and, in his order, permitted the compounding of the offence upon payment of ? 40 crores to the state of West Bengal, which took the property developers (petitioner and/or the owner of the property M/s Emaar India Limited) to court.
