Application dismissed as the Applicant - . Ratneshwar Prasad Singh is urging change in the construction of open drain meant to carry the domestic sewage from the locality in question. This is not what the provision under Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 and the Water Act, 1974 both are designed to regulate. Counsel appearing on behalf of the Municipal Corporation Banka rightly pointed out that this field is governed by the Bihar Municipality Act, 2007 and the remedy for the applicant lies there.
