Green board to list polluters on its website

Bengaluru, DH News Service, Apr 21 2017, 1:42 IST
The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) will put up a list of all the 585 industries which are polluting Bellandur lake on its website.

“We are yet to receive the National Green Tribunal order but based on media reports, we have started issuing notices to industries,” said KSPCB chairman Lakshman.

He said the 585 industries have been categorised based on the level of pollutants. “We will act tough against all of them. As many as 97 are extremely hazardous and we will deal with them as sternly as possible,” said Lakshman.

On the decision to list violators on its website, Lakshman said it is a way to shame the polluters and make people aware who is behind the damage caused to Bengaluru’s ecology.

“It is another way of preventing polluters from causing damage. Once neighbours too come to know about the polluter, they will raise an alarm on spotting any repeat violation,” said Lakshman.
