The Supreme Court has turned down the plea to reopen the Sterlite copper smelting plant in Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu by setting aside the National Green Tribunal's order on Monday. The plea was from Vedanta group seeking steps to reopen the plant. The Apex court has directed the group to move to the Madras High Court and said that it can't be opened immediately. Also, the court said NGT lacked jurisdiction to pass order.
