Officials of Paonta Sahib regional office of the State Pollution Control Board (SPCB) today collected samples of waste water of a pharmaceutical unit following complaints by local villagers that the effluents released by the unit were causing pollution in the vicinity.
The said pharmaceutical unit is already under the scanner of the Drug Control Administration as its drug samples were reportedly declared sub-standard by the Central Drug Standards Organisation.
Regional Officer of the SPCB Avinash Sharda, while confirming the news, said the members of Nihalgarh panchayat had submitted a complaint to the board claiming that the effluents let out by the unit were causing pollution in the area. Samples of waste water had been taken today, he said.
If any violation of norms was detected in running the effluent treatment plant by the unit, action would be initiated, he added.
