Central pollution board asked to conduct fresh survey in Haldia

The Calcutta High Court on Friday asked the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to conduct a survey on the pollution level in Haldia and file a report within six weeks.

This after the Division Bench heard the petition filed by Trinamool Congress MP from Tamluk, Suvendu Adhikari, who has alleged that Ministry of Environment and Forests had imposed an embargo in 2010 on issuing any licence for setting up new industry in Haldia on the ground that the pollution indices in the area have reached to an alarming level.

It added that while CPCB claimed pollution index in Haldia was at 70, a report by West Bengal Pollution Control Board stated that it has declined to 67 in 2011. So, he said, the Centre should lift its ban on setting up of industries.
