Two private environmental labs raided

Environment Minister Krishna Palemar and a team of officials on Thursday conducted a surprise inspection on two centres in Bangalore and found that the labs had been issuing environmental clearance certificates to industries without proper testing.

At Viswas Environmental Labs in Indiranagar, the minister said he found only one person manning the entire lab. The environmental engineer required to conduct the pollution tests and sign the certificate was not present, Palemar said. The registers of the lab have been confiscated.
