To reduce pollution in the holy city, the state government has contemplated to introduce mechanical sweeping of streets and key roads to make these dust-free.

Unmindful of the repeated protests by a section of residents of various localities, the government has officially declared that the plant would come up at Bhagtanwala only.

Lone firm aspiring for the project fails to impress authorities with its technical know-how

Scores of full grown trees along the boundary wall of the historic Company Bagh on the Mall Road were axed today to pave way for the upcoming BRTS (Bus Rapid Transport System).

Even as the Municipal Corporation is all set to float tenders for the setting up of the Solid Waste Management Plant at Bhagtanwala tomorrow, the Amritsar-based Pollution Control Committee is geari

Even after getting a green signal from the high court, the setting up of the Solid Waste Management Plant (SWMP) at Bhagtanwala has become a bone of contention with the MC authorities.

A study being conducted at Guru Nanak Dev University pointed to the rising level of uranium in the city’s groundwater table.

Even as the state government is planning to make Amritsar a world-class city, it has miserably failed in the primary task of providing safe drinking water to its residents.

With no sewage treatment plant, the residents are forced to consume unsafe water and endure the foul smell emanating from the drains. No steps have yet been initiated by the state government or the local authorities to treat the polluted waters of the Tung Dhab drain, which passes through different parts of the city.
