New Delhi, November 25: The ban on construction activities during the emergency levels of pollution had left  labourers in a bind as contractors refused to pay them, the Delhi government has informed the Supreme Court- appointed watchdog Environment Pollution–Prevention and Control Authority (EPCA).

EPCA has now decided to review the issue, which forced many labourers to leave, and hammer out a solution as it concerned the livelihoods of thousands who flock to city in search of work. Bhure Lal and member Sunita Narain have stressed that contractors would have to pay the labourers during the period of the ban.
