On 30 April 2023, the grace period of 30 days for the completion of biomining and capping activities at the Njeliyanparamba WtE project in Kozhikode, Kerala, has reportedly ended.
The deadline was issued by Kozhikode Corporation to Zonta Infratech. The contract with Zonta Infratech for a 6.5-acre plot has been extended four times in the past due to delays in the work as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Kozhikode Corporation claims that at this point, 80% of the works were finished and expects them to be completed during mid-May 2023. However, the opposition at the corporation claimed that no more than 25% were finished.
