Okhla plant conform to state norms

The WtE plant in Okhla seems to comply with all governmental and environmental standards, according to local state officials. A joint inspection was conducted by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) and afterwards, it was reported to the National Green Tribunal (NGT) that the plant was functional and meeting all required norms. Supposedly, 90% of the required works for improving its emission values have been finished. In the past, the plant was fined for exceeding emission limits. In February, the Tribunal gave its consent for the plant to start operations when completed. However, start of operations has been delayed several times. This was reported by the Business Standard.
