Remedial steps at Bhopal gas site to be supervised

The panel is the outcome of one of the several recommendations of the Group of Ministers (GoM) on the Bhopal gas leak disaster, constituted in May to examine issues related to the gas leak including remediation steps and relief and rehabilitation of the victims and their families.

The 16-member panel’s mandate is to provide oversight and support to the state government in taking the necessary remedial actions such as waste disposal, remediation and decontamination, according to a release from the environment ministry which on Wednesday notified its formation.

Chaired by Jairam Ramesh, the panel has representatives from Finance, Chemicals and Petrochemicals, and Science and Technology Ministries.
