Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Confederation of Delhi Industries & CETP Societies (An Organisation of CETP Societies) Vs. D.P.C.C. & Others dated 05/05/2017 regarding industries in Uttar Pradesh for polluting Ganga.

The Joint Inspection Team constituted by the NGT had inspected 10 industries. Out of them, M/s ASP Sealing Product Limited, Gajraula was also inspected. As per the inspection Report, the effluent was stored in a holding tank but near the tank oil was observed. The Counsel appearing for the industry submits that after inspection they have installed an ETP to bring the effluent standard within the prescribed limit. NGT questioned why the industry did not install the ETP for all these years as it has commenced its production in the year 1999. Counsel appearing for the Applicant submits that in order to show their bonafide and to bring the trade effluents within the prescribed parameters, they would deposit the sum of Rs. 10 lakhs with the Central Pollution Control Board and would comply with the recommendations of the Joint Inspection Team and ensure that their ETP would function appropriately.

NGT directs the industry to comply with all the recommendations of the Joint Inspection Team and make its ETP functional immediately and ensure that it does not discharge any effluent on the land whether polluting to itself or others. NGT directs the industry  to deposit the sum of Rs. 10 lakhs with the Central Pollution Control Board.
