RESPONDING TO Supreme Court directives for time-bound modernisation of abattoirs, the Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) has chalked out a one-year deadline for constructing a Rs 2 crore state-of-the-art slaughterhouse near Devguradia trenching ground.

As per a draft proposal prepared by the IMC Health Department, the abattoir would be shifted from its present site at Khajrana to a modern facility near the landfill site by March next year. To be spread over five acres the proposed slaughterhouse would be a ‘zero water discharge’ facility conforming to international hygiene standards and boast on-site effluent disposal plant (EDP) as well as in-house sewage treatment apparatus.

A portion of the slaughterhouse premises would be reserved as a green belt, and slaughter and disposal of carcass would be carried out as prescribed by National Pollution Control Board (NPCB) guidelines. Of the total project cost, Rs 1 crore would be provided by the Centre with the balance shared equally between the State Government and Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC).

A joint team of IMC and PCB officials, including Mayor-in-Council in-charge of Health Rajendra Rathore and PCB Regional Manager A K Aggarwal toured the site on Friday to flesh out the bare bones abattoir proposal.

The apex court recently ordered the National Pollution Control Board (NPCB) to ensure that all abattoirs adhered to its guidelines for slaughter as well as waste and effluent disposal within a specified time frame.
