NEERI to probe reality of garbage dumping site in Bhopal: Apex court

Wednesday, 10 July 2024 | PNS | Bhopal

A big decision has been taken regarding the scientific execution of Adampur Garbage Dumping site  in Bhopal. Senior environmentalist Subhash C. Pandey said the special bench of the Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) to investigate the reality of the dumping site. The report has to be submitted after an investigation in 3 months. The next hearing of this case will be held on 21 October 2024.

Environmentalist Dr. Pandey said that the historic order of the Supreme Court will provide a big relief to thousands of residents and villagers living around  Adampur Garbage Dumping site  . At the same time, hope has also arisen that now not only the groundwater of Adampur and its surroundings will be saved from being poisonous, but the quality of water of other water resources and the Ajnaal river passing nearby will also improve.

After the order, NEERI i.e., NEERI will investigate and submit the report. This institution is from Nagpur. The investigation and monitoring of the Supreme Court will also increase the capacity of the processing units operating in  Adampur Garbage Dumping site . At the same time, the heaps of garbage lying for years will also be eliminated. After this, a green belt will be developed around  Adampur Garbage Dumping site .

Environmentalist Dr. Pandey said that the Ajnaal river is a tributary of India's holy river Ganga. This will also free this river from pollution. Which will ultimately achieve remarkable success in making the Ganga river pollution free.

He said, today's order of the Supreme Court will set an example for the entire state, because now all the government agencies and responsible departments will have the fear that if there is too much laxity in the matter, then investigation can also be done by national institutions like NEERI.

The urban waste of the entire city has been dumped in  Adampur Garbage Dumping site   since 2018. It was being set on fire repeatedly, for which Dr. Pandey filed a petition against Bhopal Municipal Corporation in the National Green Tribunal Bhopal in the year 2023. In which, considering the facts of Dr. Pandey to be correct, NGT imposed a fine of Rs 1 crore 80 lakh on Bhopal Municipal Corporation, but the Municipal Corporation challenged the said case in the Supreme Court and requested to waive the fine imposed.
