Source: Business Standard, Date: , 2017
Business Standard, New Delhi, Jan 2017: As Delhi continues to battle 'very poor'
air quality, the Supreme Court-empowered EPCA today asked the Delhi government
to ensure that the Badarpur thermal power plant, a major source of air
pollution in the city, continues to remain shut. Last November, the government
had issued directions under section 31 A of Air Pollution (Prevention and
Control of Pollution) Act 1981, for closure of all the units of the power plant
till January 31. Sources said NTPC, which operates the plant, has received no
fresh communication from the government to resume its operations. However,
Environment Secretary Chandraker Bharti refused to comment on the issue.
