High Pollutant Levels In Discharge Of Several CETPs

Ahmedabad: Three Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) estates — those in Vatva, Odhav and Naroda — and the industry cluster in Kathwada are under the scanner for polluting river Sabarmati. The state industries department is now desperately seeking some accountability from the common effluent treatment plants (CETPs) in treating industrial effluents. The department found from data with the Gujarat Pollution Control Board that, in the last four years, discharge norms set by the central pollution control board were not met. This has become a matter of concern for the state government.
