Tweeted BY AIR
The National Green Tribunal, NGT, has imposed a penalty of Rs 280 crore on 22 tanneries in Kanpur for causing pollution.

A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel also held the Uttar Pradesh government liable and slapped a penalty of 10 crore rupees on it.

The green panel said, the problem has not been tackled for the last 43 years and it has resulted in contamination of groundwater affecting the health of the inhabitants.

The NGT said the Central Pollution Control Board may issue appropriate directions to ensure that no authority allows discharge of polluted sewage or effluents directly into a water channel in violation of the law even in the monsoon.
