Coal tar units without EC to be shut down: Green Tribunal

Date of Release: 
Nov 6 2013

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has made it clear that any coal tar processing unit operating in the country without clearance from State Environment Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA) or Environment Ministry shall cease its operations till it obtains the requisite permission.

A bench headed by Justice P Jyothimani, however, made it clear that if a unit does not fall within the purview of the 2006 Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) notification, which provides for environment clearance (EC) requirement, it shall not be prohibited from operating.
