The Supreme Court on Wednesday came down heavily on the Centre and the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) for not being able to protect the iconic Taj Mahal, issuing a warning it will "shut it down" and the authorities should "demolish or restore" the Mughal structure.

India's Supreme Court has criticised the government for what it calls a "failure" to protect the Taj Mahal.

Taj Mahal is one of the best and most handsome tourist destinations of India, but the rise in air pollution in Agra is damaging the monumennt.

It said a special committee has also been set up to find the source of pollution in and around the Taj Mahal, which will suggest measures to prevent it. "Do you realise the loss cost to the country due to your apathy?"
Only one monument, they said, could have solved the problem of the country. The bench asked the Centre to furnish details of what has been done and what is required to protect the monument.
The Supreme Court declared it would hear the matter daily from July 31, in further indication of the seriousness it attaches to the Taj's preservation.
