Shimla, July 7

Taking serious note of environment degradation in the industrial hub of the state, Baddi-Barotiwala and Nalagarh, the Himachal Pradesh High Court summoned Member Secretary of the State Pollution Control Board on July 30 and directed him to file an affidavit explaining what action was taken by the board against the polluting units.

While passing this order a Division Bench comprising Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Sanjay Karol further directed the state Chief Secretary and the Chief Executive Officer of the Baddi-Barotiwala and Nalagarh to file their personal affidavits along with the latest status report qua setting up of common effluent treatment plant and solid waste management plant.

The court also directed the Member Secretary of the board to explain in his affidavit that whether or not the board had prepared any comprehensive plans for the prevention of pollution and control of streams and wells and also explain whether the board in the past three years ever sent any advice to the state government as to how pollution could be controlled.

The court also directed the secretary to place information before the court with regard to all industries which according to it require separate effluent treatment plants.
