Taking note of the violations of environmental norms, the Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) has issued a show-cause notice to a real estate conglomerate namely Ansal Sushant City, Panipat, for flaws in the management of solid and liquid waste generated from the residential societies phase one and two.

The orders are issued by the regional officer of the HSPCB for closure under Section 33-A and prosecution under Section 44/47 for violation of Section 25 of the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, and imposition of environmental compensation as per the policy order. The violations were detected during an inspection conducted on August 1.

The official said that the unit was inspected on August 1 and found that it is an infrastructure development project.

The team also found that the consent to operate (CTO) granted to the unit had expired on March 31, 2021, and the unit is covered under the orange category as per the policy order in December 2020.

Moreover, the unit failed to apply for the renewal of the CTO so this unit which is not applicable as per Section 21/22 of the Air Act and Section 25/26 of the Water Act, reads the order.

As per the orders, the notice has been issued and the board has directed the authority to respond to the show-cause notice within 15 days. Otherwise, it will be presumed that the authority has nothing to say in this regard and accept the status in the notice which will warrant action under the Preservation and Control of Pollution Act or imposition of environmental compensation, it added.
