TNPCB orders 17 textile units to halt operations

May '12
Following lapse of the 90 day time limit allowed by the Tamil Nadu State Pollution Control Board (TNPCB), 17 textile dyeing units based in State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Ltd (SIPCOT) Industrial Growth Centre at Perundurai in Erode, Tamil Nadu, have stopped their operations.

The 17 units were directed to shut down by the TNPCB around 18 months back, as these units were alleged to be breaching pollution norms.

The units then pleaded before the court of law to get the decision reversed. Upon this, the court directed them to approach the TNPCB, which allowed them 90 days time to satisfy the pollution control norms. Now as the time lapsed, these units were required to close down.

However, the textile units claim that they have satisfied the TNPCB norms and they would once again approach the TNPCB with an urge to grant them a permanent license to commence operations.

TNPCB stated that it would periodically check the pollution levels and criminal action would be initiated against those units found to be guilty of breaching the pollution norms by acts like discharging untreated effluents in water bodies.
