CPCB to analyse air samples around Okhla plant once every four months: NGT

Source: Financial Express, New Delhi, Date: October , 2017

Source: Financial Express, New Delhi, Oct 11, 2017:- The National Green Tribunal has directed the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to collect and analyse the ambient air quality samples around the Okhla waste-to-energy plant once in four months. A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar modified its February 2 order in which it had asked the CPCB and the Delhi Pollution Control Committee to collect the samples every month. The CPCB contended that keeping in view the expenses involved and the fact that the board did not have any in-house mechanism to analyse toxic chemicals Dioxin and Furans, the sample collection and analysis could be done once in four months. The bench said, “We allow this prayer. The CPCB is permitted to collect and analyse the samples of ambient air quality once in four months. It shall also conduct at least two surprise inspections and analysis in a year.”
