The Union environment ministry has proposed new pollution monitoring standards for industries in at least 22 sectors over the past few months in an attempt to regulate these sectors better.
Some of these standards have been put online for suggestions and comments from various stakeholders.
“These would be finalized and notified within the next two to three months. These proposed standards will immensely strengthen the ministry’s overall regulation of the polluting industries,” said a senior environment ministry official, who did not want to be identified.
