Despite an order from the National Green Tribunal to halt all illegal activities in the area, boundary walls are being erected, trees are being felled, terrain is being flattened and stone quarried from the hillocks of Aravallis. The vulnerability of the eco-sensitive region is underlined by the fact that none of the 51 forest check posts set up in the Aravallis zone of Gurugram and Sohna in 2016 exist as of date.
