SUBJECT :Team says it meets all processing requisites  

Chandigarh, December 21
A three-member committee of the union ministry of new and renewable energy have certified that the garbage processing plant at Dadu Majra for meets all requirements required for processing garbage.

The committee had inspected the plant on December 3 to submit a report regarding the equipment installed at the plant and check its operation.

The report mentioned that the plant had the facility of initial segregation of solid waste, separation of magnetic material, drying of segregation and homogenised product, homogenisation of segregated product and its classification and separation into inert and RDF.

The report also stated that the management had imported critical equipment from a world-known manufacturer.

The report was submitted to MC Commissioner Roshan Sunkaria. The corporation had issued a show-cause notice to the management of the plant in April 2009, claiming that it had failed to make the garbage processing plant operational within the prescribed time under the provision of Clause 5.1 of the implementation agreement.

A sub-committee had also been constituted by the MC house under the chairmanship of Chander Mukhi Sharma to monitor the machinery and its installation as per the MOU.

However, the report was never discussed in the house even after several special house meetings were convened in this connection.

The representative of the company, RD Sharma, stated that they had also submitted the report to UT administrator SF Rodrigues and Adviser Pardeep Mehra. Since they had been given a clean chit by the central

pollution board and the committee of the Central government, they hoped that the show-cause notice issued to them would be withdrawn by the authorities soon.
