Industries To Install New Equipment To Meet Norms

New Delhi (PIB-GR-TYP-BIN): “24×7 Real Time Monitoring of Pollution from various industries is a major revolution brought in by the NDA Government. Earlier method of physical sampling and lab testing was found to be inadequate as it could not capture pollution levels all 24 hours. With on-line monitoring the situation has completely changed and monitoring can be done continuously. The industries now are taking steps to install new equipment to meet environmental norms. We shall also bring about necessary changes in law to enable use of on-line data as legal evidence” – Prakash Javadekar, Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change (Independent Charge)
