To a separate query, Puri said the government had appointed a thirty member ‘Central Advisory Council’, to advice and recommend it on all matters concerning the implementation of the Real Estate Act. The initiative came, amid reports of dilution of tough provisions of the Act by some states.

To another query, the minister said the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) had intimated that the incident at the landfill site at Ghazipur, on September 1, 2017, happened due to ‘slope failure, probably caused by heavy rains and percolation of water inside the dump’.
