The Supreme Court on Thursday pulled up both the Centre and the Uttar Pradesh Government in connection with the Taj Mahal environment protection case.

The Apex Court has expressed its unhappiness over the procedures of the Centre and the state government to deal the with the situtation.

The Uttar Pradesh Government was asked to submit a protection and preservation plan for the Taj Mahal, after the Supreme Court sought a report on the same.

Hearing a plea of an environmentalist, seeking protection of the historical monument from the pollution around, the top court had ordered demolition of a multi-level car parking that was built near the Taj Mahal.

Though the court stayed its order in November, it asked Taj Trapezium Zone (TTZ) authority to come up with a comprehensive action plan to protect the Mughal mausoleum.
