Introduction

In the year 1996 Justice Kuldeep Singh of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India took cognizance of PIL filed by Shri M.C. Mehta regarding pollution in Delhi. Hon’ble Supreme Court directed that the DPCC should appoint consultant to study and recommend ways and means to handle industrial effluents in Delhi. DPCC appointed NEERI. NEERI after detailed survey recommended that 15 Nos CETPs should be set up in Delhi to cater to all the industrial estates of the capital. DSIIDC has directed by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to construct these CETPs. Hon’ble Supreme Court directed that this should be shared in the following pattern: -

  • 50% by Industries
  • 25% by Govt. of India
  • 25% by Delhi Govt.

The DSIIDC prepared estimates for setting up 15 Nos CETPs in different parts of Delhi and acquired land. It was found that NEERI had prepared an estimate which did not include cost of land, cost of conveyance of effluent from last manhole to treatment plant, cost of pump houses, charges for development of power facilities, cost of boundary walls, internal buildings, roads, laboratories etc.
DSIIDC has constructed 11 CETPs namely Wazirpur, Mangolpuri, Mayapuri, G.T.K, Badli, S.M.A, Okhla Indl. Area, Jhilmil, Nangloi, Lawrence Road & Naraina. As per the scheme approved by the Hon’ble Supreme Court, these CETP were to be handed over to respective CETP Societies for operation & maintenance after construction. Out of 11 constructed CETPs, 10 have been handed over to Societies except CETPs at Lawrence Road.

Hon’ble Supreme Court appointed an authority called EPCA {Environment Pollution (Prevention Control) Authority} under Shri Bhure Lal to monitor the progress of work. This Committee had a review of the work and decided that out of 15, CETPs namely Mohan Co-operative, Anand Parbat and Okhla Indl. Estate should not be constructed while the work of CETP Najafgarh should be restarted after seeing its necessity which is being reviewed.

After the receipt of the aforesaid direction of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, Govt. of Delhi promulgated the Delhi CETP Act, 2000 and also framed the Delhi CETP Rules, 2001.
