NGT directs CPCB to submit report on Anpara thermal power plant
New Delhi: The National Green Tribunal has directed the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to submit report on the emission standards of the Anpara thermal power plant located at Sonbhadra district in Uttar Pradesh.
A bench headed by Justice Jawad Rahim reteirated its earlier direction and asked the apex pollution monitoring body to file the report by April 12.
The green panel also directed the chief general manager of the power plant to be present before it after noting that there was no record of his presence on the earlier date.
"We reiterate the directions of our order dated December 7, 2017 and call upon the CPCB to file its report and we again direct Chief General Manager of the said plant to be present. We make it clear that the report shall be filed by CPCB within one week after serving copy on the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change," the panel said.
The tribunal had earlier noted that Anpara thermal plant in Sonabhadra district of UP was found to be worst amongst all the other thermal power plants in the state in terms of emission standards.
