Environmental status and action plan for control of pollution at Chandrapur

Considering the multitude of pollution problems at Chandrapur, MPCB took a review of the current status of the pollution from various sources in December 2005. It was noticed during the review that the industrial and other activities at Chandrapur have extensively contributed to pollution and there is a considerable rise in the associated health problems in the local population. It was perceived that pollution, mainly air pollution, at Chandrapur is a serious threat to environment and public health needing urgent intervention by all concerned. MPCB therefore decided to prepare `an integrated action plan to control pollution at Chandrapur
