GURGAON: In a crackdown on big players for flouting environment norms, the pollution control department sealed the kitchen and diesel genset of a reputed hotel in Manesar and sealed equipment of two major garment export factories.
Assistant environment engineer Dinesh Yadav, who along with his colleague Kuldeep Singh carried out the drive, said that they had earlier issued a notice to Ginger Hotel located at Raheja Square in Sector 2 for non-compliance with the Water Act. “The effluent treatment plant of the hotel was inadequate.
We had lifted samples and all of them failed the test. Since the hotel did not respond to our notice, we took action. We have also written to the electricity department to snap the power connection,” Yadav said.The officials said they also sealed the washing machines and gensets of General Overseas and Unique Wears, both located in Manesar. Yadav said those companies had also flouted the provisions of the Water Act and they sealed all equipment and facilities with a bearing on the “polluting process”. The official added, “In their case also we have recommended disconnection of power supply.
“Recently, the regional pollution control board had demolished the boundary walls of farmhouses in the Aravalis and had challenged influential people for violating the environmental norms. Sources said the crackdown would continue.
