Top India court slams gov't for ignoring upkeep of Taj Mahal

  • The Taj Mahal has begun to take on a yellow hue as a result of pollution

The Supreme Court had earlier this year blamed the Archeological Survey of India for its failure to take appropriate steps to protect and preserve the iconic monument built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.

It said a special committee has also been set up to find the source of pollution in and around the Taj, which will suggest measures to prevent it. It had said that ASI was not properly discharging its duty in maintaining the beauty of the Taj and asked the Centre to consider whether some other organisation be given the responsibility to protect the 17th century heritage. Our Taj is more handsome.

"Eighty million go to watch Eiffel Tower which looks like a TV Tower".

In May this year, the court had already instructed the government to seek foreign help to fix the "worrying change in colour" of the marble structure. "Do you realise the loss caused to the country due to your apathy?", the judges were quoted by IANS.

The Centre also mentioned that IIT, Kanpur was conducting an assessment of air pollution level in and around the Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ) and they would give their report within four months.

The Supreme Court declared it would hear the matter daily from July 31, in further indication of the seriousness it attaches to the Taj's preservation. It directed the Centre to file an affidavit in two weeks giving details of what has been done for protection of the Taj and what it meant to do in future. Taj Mahal has to be protected.

The court said both the federal and state government had shown "lethargy" in taking steps to tackle the monument's deteriorating condition.
