They have put the 50-year future of Kota at stake. This river is a Gair Mumkin Nadi  in the revenue records, which finally connect with Gharial Sanctuary.

There were hundreds of peacocks here. State town planning department has released the conditional approval for the city park vide which it was the responsibility of Urban Improvement Trust to ensure  conservation of peacock following the wild life guidelines and Forest Act. The Urban improvement Trust did not take any safe guard and cut the tree  without taking permission from green tribunal /forest department competent authority .

NGT Ajmer has ordered to demolish the 7 Wonders of Ana Sagar Lake:

It is noteworthy that due to similar violations in 7 Wonders built on Ana Sagar Lake of Ajmer, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has ordered the demolition of 7 Wonders. Because the river has been created in the buffer zone i.e. open space. Kota River Front is also built in Chambal Gharial Sanctuary and open space of the river.
The Forest and Environment Ministry had asked the officers to take action:
Apart from reducing the flow area of the river, necessary environmental clearance has also not been taken for this. In this critical matter , the Ministry of Forest, Environment and Climate Change of the Central Government  a letter written to the State Government on July 1, 2023, stating that , Chambal Gharial Sanctuary and Forest Environment and Wildlife Area is still in the process of being notified, hence no work can be done without permission from SC-NBWL. This action will also be considered a clear violation of the orders of the Supreme Court. Therefore, considering it a violation of the rules, the work was immediately stopped and action was taken against the concerned officials.
