New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal Friday cracked the whip on industries located in the city's residential areas with a direction to close them within a month for discharging untreated toxic waste in drains leading to Yamuna.


A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Swantanter Kumar said the Delhi government's decision that there should be no polluting industries in the residential areas is in consonance with law.


"All such industries which are operating in residential/ domestic areas are violating the prescribed user under the Master Plan and more seriously present a very pertinent and prominent source of pollution of the drains. They discharge their effluents into the drains without any treatment and majority of them are operating even without the consent of the board.


"No industry which is operating or discharging any effluent or other such industrial waste and/or which has not obtained the consent of the Board would be permitted in the residential zone or areas of NCT Delhi, or non-conforming area... They will be given months period to shut down," the bench said.


The tribunal directed Delhi Pollution Control Committee and Central Pollution Control Board to submit a report regarding the effluent quality from all the 13 Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) in Delhi.


"They shall clearly point out whether they are capable of treating the effluents depending upon the nature of the industries they are serving and the effluent of which they are stated to be treated," it said adding, "this team shall also submit a report particularly in regard to pickling industries in Delhi which are located more particularly in the area of Wazirpur".


It also directed the Committee of DPCC and CPCB to submit analysis report of the emission and dumping of the fly ash by the Indraprastha Power Station within two weeks from today.


The observations came while monitoring the implementation of its "Maili se Nirmal Yamuna Revitalisation Project 2017".
