River pollution: HC breather for dyeing units

Meanwhile, the HC has asked GPCB to cut the power supply to any unit found using the illegal ghats. "We expect to receive the order in a day or two and soon after, the board will take action," said a GPCB official.

Patel said the HC has cleared the way for the two upcoming treatment plants, which had met with intense protest from the local farmers. "The HC has asked the association to seek the help of the Rajkot district collector in case there is any problem in construction of the plants," Patel added.

One of the oldest in Independent India, the cluster boasts of the maximum number of printing units in the country and contributes a lion's share to Saurashtra's economy. The industry employs over 20,000 workers and exports mainly to African countries.
