The National Green Tribunal (NGT) in Shimla, northern India has started to allocate compensation for illegal felling of the trees.  It has directed Parminder Kaur residing in the area to deposit about 32000 dollars for illegal felling of about 477 trees in his own land without intimation to the concerned authority. The amount thus collected is to be deposited with the forest department as initial payment for re-forestation and restoration of environment. Further, the NGT has directed DFO of Shimla to submit a restoration plan.
