Govt mulls pushing local bodies to wall for not abiding by waste rules
By Navhindtimes 07-Jul-2019
The government has been taken to task by the National Green Tribunal for failing to comply with waste management rules. The green watchdog has asked the Chief Secretary to submit the status of compliance report on October 21.
Directing that the state government take immediate remedial steps, the watchdog headed by chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel, and comprising K Ramakrishnan and Dr Nagin Nanda, on April 10 had warned that if the report is found to be unsatisfactory then it would consider taking performance guarantee of a particular amount.
To ensure that local self-governing bodies set up their own systems for waste collection and disposal, the government is trying to push the panchayats and municipalities to the wall vis-a-vis their revenue sources.
A senior official in the municipal administration department said the government is seriously considering imposing a ban on local bodies restraining them from issuing licences and taking fees, unless they develop a system to dispose of waste.
The government has been providing equipment and funds for developing basic infrastructure on 100 per cent waste segregation and storage of solid waste before transporting it to cement kiln for co-incineration, the official explained.
