After Sri Sri threatens to pull a Sahara, NGT tells Art of Living: Pay Rs 5 crore in three weeks (or else)

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday gave three weeks to Art of Living (AoL) to pay environmental compensation of Rs 5 crore for holding World Culture Festival on the Yamuna floodplains in Delhi, after AoL’s leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar had said in TV interviews he’d rather go to jail than pay the fine.

The NGT held a hearing on Friday over implementation of its Wednesday’s order (read the order and analysis of the order here).

AoL told the tribunal that it will abide by the ruling and sought four weeks to deposit Rs 5 crore.

The tribunal said that the AoL should pay Rs 25 lakh on Friday and the balance in three weeks.

The AoL’s three-day cultural extravaganza starts on Friday.

The organisers have already spent Rs 25.63 crore on the event.
