Bengaluru: Amidst the worsening water crisis in the city, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked the Karnataka State Cricket Association and other state authorities concerned to furnish details of water being used at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium during the IPL matches here.


Apart from the state cricket association, NGT has also asked the Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) to submit the particulars about the quantity and source of the water by May 2.

“We are studying the notice, and as such the stadium complies with the NGT norms. So, we are confident of going ahead with the matches,” said Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) CEO Shubendu Ghosh.
