Out of these three, which one will I choose? --
which route will take less time?
(3) is best bet. road is bad only from ghat till pitoragarh. For 1, 2 you'll see bad road starting from tanakpur till pitoragarh and frequent traffic jam because of road widening work.
(3) Delhi - Moradabad bypass - bazpur - kaladhungi - nainital - almora - jageshwar - danya - ghat - pithoragarh - dharchula

Ask after 15th or 16th after the weather clears up. Only then situation will be clear.

Around Rohru towards Chanshal Pass, this route is going to be closed soon and not in good conditions due ro recent rains and snowfall.
12 to 15 is also same weather conditions due to snowfall & rains conditions will be worse or bad only.
You can go till road allows.
It is Your call to reach wherever you want to.

After you turn left from Tanda/bazpur road towards Moradabad, patchwork is going on, so some bad patches for 4-5 kms
Moradabad bypass to Delhi: Good most of the way except mandatory Traffic Jam at Pilakhua these days.

Supreme Court Order For Stop All Weather Road Project In Uttarakhand

ऑल वेदर रोड प्रोजेक्ट पर सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने लगाई रोक, केंद्र और राज्य सरकार से 15 नवंबर तक मांगा जवाब

न्यूज डेस्क/ अमर उजाला, नई दिल्ली/देहरादून

चारधाम महामार्ग विकास परियोजना - फोटो : Demo pic


सुप्रीम कोर्ट ने राष्ट्रीय हरित अधिकरण (एनजीटी) की ओर से ‘चारधाम महामार्ग विकास परियोजना’ को दी मंजूरी पर रोक लगा दी है। इस महत्वाकांक्षी परियोजना के तहत ऑल-वेदर संपर्क मार्ग के जरिये यमुनोत्री, गंगोत्री, केदारनाथ और बद्रीनाथ को जोड़ा जाना है। न्यायमूर्ति आरएफ नरीमन और एस. अब्दुल नजीर की पीठ ने केंद्र व उत्तराखंड सरकार को नोटिस जारी कर जवाब मांगा है। मामले पर अगली सुनवाई 15 नवंबर को होगी।

सुनवाई के दौरान अतिरिक्त सॉलिसिटर जनरल पिंकी आनंद ने कहा कि एनजीटी पहले ही परियोजना के संबंध में आदेश दे चुका है। याची एनजीओ ‘सिटिजंस फॉर ग्रीन दून’ के वकील संजय पारिख ने कहा कि एनजीटी का आदेश सुप्रीम कोर्ट के 27 अगस्त को दिए आदेश के मुताबिक नहीं है। इस पर पीठ ने चारधाम परियोजना पर रोक लगाते हुए नोटिस जारी कर केंद्र व राज्य सरकार से 15 नवंबर तक जवाब दाखिल करने का निर्देश दिया।

एनजीटी ने 26 सितंबर को निगरानी समिति का गठन करते हुए परियोजना को मंजूरी दे दी। अधिकरण ने कहा कि सभी पर्यावरणीय चिंताओं को जिम्मेदार और स्वतंत्र निगरानी प्रणाली के जरिये दूर किया जा सकता है। यह प्रणाली परियोजना के कार्यान्वयन के दौरान पर्यावरण संबंधी सुरक्षा उपायों की निगरानी कर सकती है।

एनजीटी ने वाहनों को लेकर भी दिया था निर्देश
एनजीटी ने स्पष्ट किया कि 22 अगस्त, 2013 की अधिसूचना के जरिये मिली छूट के मुताबिक पर्यावरण संरक्षण कानून, 1986 के तहत पर्यावरणीय प्रभाव आकलन की आवश्यकता नहीं है। पीठ ने उत्तराखंड हाईकोर्ट के पूर्व न्यायाधीश यूसी ध्यानी की अध्यक्षता में एक समिति भी गठित की, ताकि परियोजना की पर्यावरण प्रबंधन योजना (ईएमपी) के कार्यान्वयन की निगरानी की जा सके।

समिति में वाडिया इंस्टीट्यूट ऑफ हिमालयन जियोलॉजी, राष्ट्रीय आपदा आपदा प्रबंधन संस्थान, केंद्रीय मृदा संरक्षण अनुसंधान संस्थान, वन अनुसंधान संस्थान, वन व पर्यावरण विभाग के सचिव और संबंद्ध जिला मजिस्ट्रेट शामिल हैं। एनजीटी ने अधिकारियों को यमुनोत्री, गंगोत्री, केदारनाथ और बद्रीनाथ जैसे धार्मिक स्थानों की पदयात्रा करने वालों के लिए भी एक तंत्र बनाने को कहा।

अधिकरण ने कहा कि प्रशासन को ऐसी नीति तैयार करने के लिए कहा गया, जिससे 10 साल से अधिक पुराने डीजल वाहन और 15 साल से अधिक पुराने पेट्रोल वाहन परियोजना की सड़कों पर नहीं चल सकें। एनजीटी का फैसला विभिन्न एनजीओ द्वारा दायर याचिकाओं पर आया था। दरअसल, याचिकाओं में कहा गया था कि परियोजना के कार्यान्वयन की पर्यावरण मंजूरी जरूरी थी। बिना मंजूरी हो रहे कार्य पूरी तरह से अवैध हैं।

8542.41 करोड़ रुपये के 37 कार्य हो चुके स्वीकृत
11,700 करोड़ रुपये लागत की इस परियोजना के तहत 8542.41 करोड़ रुपये के 37 कार्य स्वीकृत हो चुके हैं। 6683.58 करोड़ की 28 योजनाओं पर काम शुरू हो चुका है। 246.39 करोड़ के तीन कार्य की निविदाओं के अनुबंध हो चुके हैं। 1374.67 करोड़ की चार योजनाओं की निविदाएं प्राप्त हो गई हैं। 237.75 करोड़ के दो कार्य के लिए निविदाएं आमंत्रित की जा चुकी हैं।

81.50 प्रतिशत वन भूमि हस्तांतरण का काम पूरा
परियोजना के तहत 81.50 प्रतिशत वन भूमि के हस्तांतरण की प्रक्रिया पूरी हो चुकी है। इसके तहत 841.46 किमी लंबाई में भूमि हस्तांतरित होनी है। इसमें से 685.70 प्रतिशत भूमि के हस्तांतरण की स्वीकृति हो चुकी है।

SC stays NGT order clearing ambitious Chardham project in Uttarakhand
Press Trust of India | New Delhi Last Updated at October 22, 2018 20:40 IST


The Supreme Court Monday stayed the order of National Green Tribunal (NGT) which had cleared the ambitious 'Chardham Mahamarg Vikas Pariyojna' that proposes to provide all-weather connectivity to four holy towns of Uttarakhand.

The four towns of the hilly state to be connected by all-weather roads are: Yamnotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath.

A bench of Justices R F Nariman and S Abdul Nazeer issued notice to Centre and Uttarakhand and sought their reply.

It posted the matter for further hearing on November 15.

During the hearing, Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, appearing for Centre, said that the green tribunal had already passed an order with regard to the project.

Advocate Sanjay Parikh, appearing for petitioner NGO 'Citizens for Green Doon', said that the order was passed by a bench of tribunal which was not as per the apex court order of August 27.

The bench, then stayed the order of tribunal and sought response from the Centre and state government by November 15.

On September 26, the green tribunal had constituted a committee to monitor the ambitious project while giving its nod with some safeguards in view of the larger public interest and the country's security in the construction of highway.

"We are of the view that all environmental concerns can be addressed by having a responsible and independent oversight mechanism which may monitor the environmental safeguards during the execution of this project," the tribunal had said.

It had said that the statutory environmental impact assessment under the Environment Protection Act, 1986 was not required in view of exemption granted through notification dated August 22, 2013.

The tribunal constituted a committee headed by former Uttarakhand High Court Judge Justice U C Dhyani to oversee the implementation of Environment Management Plan (EMP) of the project.

The NGT had directed the authorities to devise a mechanism to provide pedestrian pathways for devotees who undertake to do 'padyatra' to the religious places viz Yamnotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath.

It also asked the concerned authorities to devise a policy whereby diesel vehicles which are more than 10 years old and petrol vehicles which are over 15 years old are prohibited to ply along the entire road length of the project.

"The Chief Secretary, Uttarakhand and the Uttarakhand Administration shall devise a policy by way of introduction of E-vehicles and CNG buses in a time bound manner," the green panel had said.

The apex court had on August 27, asked the NGT chairman to accord "one clear day" to an original bench, which had heard petitions dealing with environmental clearance issues related to Chardham highway project.

The top court had clarified that since the issue appears to be a complex one and has been heard over several days by the original bench, the re-hearing can only be done by NGT on some finer aspects.

The petitioner NGO had said that the environment clearance was must for the project and the ongoing work was "blatantly illegal".

It had said the trees and mountains are also of national importance and it is the government's duty to protect and preserve them.

The Environment Ministry had earlier informed the NGT that it has received no proposal for environmental clearance of the project and hence the question of an environment impact assessment (EIA) study of such a project does not arise.

The ministry also said that under the 2006 EIA notification, only new national highways and expansion of highways over 100 km need to get prior environmental clearance.

The submission was made in response to a plea of the NGO which said that the 900 km project in the hilly state was being carried out without any environment impact assessment.

The petition of the NGO also contended that the Centre has allegedly deliberately broken it into small stretches to do away the requirement for obtaining environment clearance.

It had alleged that the road widening work to connect Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunotri and Gangotri in Uttarakhand was being carried out in violation of environmental laws.
