RD Group has filed a petition against the tender process in the High Court

A petition has been filed in the High Court from the RD Group of Dehradun. It has been said that after the disaster of 2015, the government allowed 14 helipad companies to make helipads to ease traffic congestion in Badrinath and Kedarnath. Related companies make scheduled helipads. With this, 04 helipads are also made by the government. Here, the government issued the mandate in 2016. It was decided that more than 06 helicopters could not fly in the Mandakini valley at one go. In the future, no new helipad construction will be allowed in the area. Currently, 18 helipads are already made. Apart from these 14 companies, the government has allowed four other helipad companies to make helipads. The DM of the district complained to the government, but no action was taken from the government.
