Much hyped leather estate that never took off
Mar '09
A composite leather estate, to which all the tanneries located in the Hazaribagh area would be relocated, had been planned a few years ago with all the amenities which included pollution control equipment, adhering to environmental safety laws. But the much hyped estate has got entangled in bureaucratic hurdles.

The leather estate which was conceived in 2003, was in the first place, planned with the specific purpose of shifting the 149 odd, leather manufacturing units located in Hazaribagh and which were spewing poisonous chemicals in to the system without being treated and in the process raising the hackles of the environmentalists.

But the demands and conditions put forth by the tanneries has put a spanner in the plan. The tanneries are demanding 7-8 percent of the shifting expenses from the government in form of soft loans and grants with half the amount meant as grants. They also want the estate to be equated at par with the export zones to take advantage of the sops.

According to experts the government was to build a common effluent treatment plant (CEPT) by 2010, but, till date no steps seem to have been initiated in that direction and add by saying that relocation of the tanneries to the new location would not serve its purpose if the CEPT is not operational, since these factories would end up polluting the new estate.
