Chhattisgarh Environment Conservation Board (CECB) and some
of the leading government hospitals in Raipur, including AIIMS, are at
loggerheads over notices issued to them for non-compliance of rules pertaining
to disposal of medical waste. Though notices were issued to AIIMS and Ambedkar
Hospital and 16 others on May 3, authorities of both these government hospitals
have denied receiving any communication from CECB even after 10 days. CECB had
issued these notices after conducting an inspection of their premises.
