Ludhiana, July 14

The Punjab Pollution Control Board, Ludhiana, has found ‘violations’ at a dyeing unit in Phase VIII of Focal Point. In a press note issued here today, Senior Environmental Engineer Sandeep Bahl said a dyeing industry, M/s Aggarwal Scientific Dyers, was inspected by a team today. He said: “During the visit, we found that the industry was operational but the ETP was lying defunct. The collection tank was filled to the brim. The condition indicated that the industry was discharging its effluents through illegal means during odd hours.”

“This industry was earlier also visited by the NGT Monitoring Committee in August 2019 and its ETP was found non-operational. Environmental Compensation of Rs 20 lakh was imposed on the industry and directions for its closure were issued. The present visit indicates that the industry is a chronic violator. The report has been prepared and strict action will be taken against the defaulting industry”, said Bahl.
