Big blow for Punjab Kings! PIL filed against new stadium at Mullanpur for Environmental law breaches

IPL 2024: No more matches at Mullanpur Stadium? Big blow for Punjab Kings as new home stadium faces PIL for Environmental law breaches

A public interest litigation (PIL) petition has been filed against the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium at Mullanpur. The reason – the construction of the stadium wasn’t done in accordance to the environmental conditions. Since the stadium falls within 10 kms of a bird sanctuary, the Environmental clearance hasn’t been complied with. As per the PIL, matches have been requested to stop at the stadium.

The new stadium at Mullanpur is the new home to IPL franchise Punjab Kings. Previous game have taken place at the stadium. But if the court gives the restrain that could possibly mean no further IPL matches at PBKS’s new venue. A

As per the Supreme Court directive, prior environmental clearances needs to be taken from National Board for Wildlife (NBWL). This is owing to the fact that the stadium falls within a 10 km radius of a bird sanctuary. Reports further indicate that the essential environmental & Wildlife clearances were not taken from Department of Forest and Wildlife, Chandigarh when the stadium was constructed.

Now, should the Supreme Court go on to put a restrain on the stadium, it will be a blow for Punjab Kings. It will mean that no further matches can take place during IPL 2024.
