RTI Expose: Effluent plant spews toxic waste

Here is why one gets to see toxic effluents being discharged into Kharikut canal from Vatva GIDC industrial area despite the presence of an effluent treatment plant.

Recent inspection records of Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) reveal that the effluent treatment plant, Green Environment Services Co-operative Society Limited at Vatva GIDC set up in the industrial area itself was injecting untreated toxic sludge into Kharikut canal.

This embarrassing fact was brought forth by one of the expelled employees of the treatment plant, Vishnu Patel, who had asked GPCB the inspection details under Right to Information (RTI) Act.
