Sukhdev Vihar and Jasola residents have written to the environment ministry, requesting that the Okhla waste-to-energy plant be expanded without permission.According to UK Bharadwaj, president of the Sukhdev Vihar residents' welfare group, the plants' expansion would raise pollution levels in Sukhdev Vihar, Jasola, Sarita Vihar, New Friends Colony, and more nearby areas during the winter season.According to DK Bansal, the Jasola RWA's general secretary, the expansion plan should be dismissed because the plant has failed to meet green regulations and lacks a biomethanation plant as well as a refuse derived fuel system.
