MP Pollution Board not to relax norms for textile units

The Madhya Pradesh Pollution Control Board (MPPCB) will follow Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) norms and it will not allow the release of industrial wastes from textile units in the state.

The state government is aiming to attract Rs. 105 billion investments in the textile sector for enhancing its installed spindle capacity.

Amidst reports of the Madhya Pradesh government considering giving relaxation in pollution control norms to attract investments in the textile sector, fibre2fashion spoke to MPPCB Chairman Mr. NP Shukla.

“The state PCB has been following the norms mandated by CPCB and it does not allow textile mills to release untreated water,” Mr. Shukla said.

“The board is firm in its decision of allowing zero-discharge of industrial waste, and we do not intend to relax any norms for the textile sector,” he adds.

MPPCB has suggested the government to promote setting up of Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) for industries by providing subsidies and soft loans. CETP beneficiaries would have to incur only 10 percent of its installation cost, and it will also help eradicate the problem of water treatment for industrial units in single cluster.
