NEW DELHI: The Centre will make necessary changes in existing law to enable use of online data as legal evidence against polluting industries if such units violate permissible emission\effluent limits.

The move is necessary as 1475 industries have already switched over to the web-based monitoring system and the remaining ones will put in the devices by June 30.
