After years of delay, the municipal corporation of Bhatinda has decided to complete the biomining of the Mansa Road dumpsite by December 2023. The local authorities have begun the bidding process. Tenders for the same will be issued on September 22.
Two lakh tonnes of legacy waste has been accumulating at a dump site on the Bathinda-Mansa Road for around three decades. The project had been in the works for years, but never took off due to various delays. The National Green Tribunal (NGT) previously ordered the Bathinda municipal corporation to complete legacy waste bio-remediation by December 2022. After failing to meet the original deadline, the Green Tribunal granted the MC’s request to extend the deadline until the end of 2023, reports Construction World.
