Panipat, June 23

A four-member committee constituted by the Panipat administration sealed 26 illegal bleaching units in the district in the past two days and disconnected their electricity connection. The Tribune had, on Friday last week, published a news report about the illegal bleaching units in the district. An RTI query has brought out that all bleaching units in Panipat are unregistered. Sources in the state government say there are 170 to 200 illegal bleaching units in the district.

Taking note of the news report, the Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) sought a report from the district authorities about the bleaching units.

Shailender Arora, regional officer, HSPCB, said the joint committee under the supervision of the SDO, HSPCB, resealed seven illegal units in Nimbri village on the Sanoli road on Monday and disconnected their power connections.

Besides, two illegal bleaching houses in Jalpar village and three in Kurar village were sealed. The team found three dismantled units. “Showcause notices have been served on bleaching unit owners,” Arora said.

On Tuesday, the team sealed nine units situated on the Panipat-Rohtak road. Three units were located in Naultha village and six in Dahar village. “The HSPCB had sealed these nine units earlier as well, but the owners resumed operations,” he said.

Deputy Commissioner Dharmender Singh said action against illegal bleaching units would continue.
