Delhi Pollution Control Committee
has issued a closure notice to packaged drinking water manufacturer Bisleri
International Private Ltd in Najafgarh Road Industrial Area for extracting
groundwater without permission from Delhi Jal Board. The plant, which allegedly
draws over 3.31 lakh litres of groundwater per day with three bore wells, also
doesn't measure reject water from its reverse osmosis plant, according to DPCC.
Action against this "unauthorized" water plant marks the beginning of
identifying and regulating industries that are bulk users of groundwater, say
