Central pollution board orders Tata Chemicals to shut down its Haldia plant
The pollution board shut down the Tata Chemicals unit after its plant was allegedly non-compliance to the prescribed norms.
The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) has ordered Tata Chemicals to shut down its Haldia plant in East Midnapore district of West Bengal for alleged non-compliance of the prescribed norm of liquid affluent discharge, the company said on Tuesday.
"This is to inform you that on March 11, 2017, the company has received a notice from the CPCB directing the company under Section 5 of the Environment Protection Act, 1986, to shut down plant operation at Haldia, West Bengal, for alleged non-compliance for liquid affluent discharge," the company said in a filing to BSE.
This order was based on the analysis of sample drawn on January 9, 2017 by the CPCB.
