NGT directs Faridabad authorities to stop pollution of Gaunchi drainage system


The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has directed the Haryana authorities, namely the Haryana State PCB and the Deputy Commissioner, Faridabad to look into allegations of dumping of untreated and toxic industrial waste into Gaunchi drain (one of the major drain systems) in Faridabad, Haryana, in violation of environmental norms.

A plea in NGT has been filed alleging that one Satpal Bhati who is a resident of Ballabgarh has been dumping waste matter into the drain by collecting it from Sec 24 and Pali Industrial Area, thereby contaminating the groundwater.

This is also causing foul smell and unhygienic conditions.
