NGT directs Haryana chief secretary to review state s inspection policy of industries

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) Friday directed Haryana chief secretary to look into the state s inspection policy of industries and directed him to submit a report within a month. A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said the policy hardly matches the mandate of precautionary and sustainable development principles of environment law as it states that highly polluting industries, as defined by the CPCB, are inspected once in three years. The green panel directed that the policy must be revised by the Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) in consultation with the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) within a month. Constitution of state pollution control board without effective functioning amounts to failure of law enacted for protection of environment, the bench said. The tribunal also expressed dissatisfaction over the report submitted by a committee of representatives of CPCB, HSPCB, Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA) and local administrations
