Court dismisses firm's petitions

The Himachal Pradesh High Court on Friday dismissed a cement company’s review petitions, which was fined Rs 100 crore for environmental damage and told to dismantle a captive thermal power plant at its cement plant.

Passing the order, a division bench of Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Sanjay Karol said: “Both the review petitions (by infrastructure group Jaipra-kash Associates Ltd.) are being disposed of by a common order since review sought is of the same judgment and the issues involved are identical.”

Jaiprakash Associates Ltd. contended that the project machinery for the thermal plant in the district had never been established.
