More than 300 commercial units in Madhya Pradesh are causing pollution by emitting harmful air and water effluents beyond the permissible limits, the State Pollution Control Board has said. In reply to an RTI query, the State Pollution Control Board gave details of about 313 such industries which flouted standard pollution control norms during 2009-10. 170 such units are located in the industrial hubs -- Ujjain, Indore and Dhar, followed by 48 in Bhopal and 32 in Jabalpur. About 24 such commercial
establishments are located in Gwalior, 18 in Guna, 12 in Rewa and two in Satna, it said. Exercising his Right to Information, Environment activist Ajay Dubey filed an
