The foundation had plead to pay the balance via bank guarantee instead of wire transfer. But the Green Tribunal has ordered to pay the remaining amount to DDA (Delhi Development Authority) by tomorrow. The panel commented that failure to pay the remaining amount till now is “wilful violation” and the court will lift the “corporate veil” if needed in this matter.
