FROM THE CHAIRMAN’S DESK

Welcome to KSPCB BULLETIN

Karnataka State Pollution Control Board is happy to launch its KSPCB BULLETIN, which will cover major Circulars and Notifications periodically. The idea is to harness the power of internet, share the information and be proactive in informing stakeholders. This idea may not be new, but we had not tried so far ! KSPCB has an equally responsible role in taking the information to all the stakeholders, and this Bulletin is a small attempt towards fulfilling this aspect. We would like to receive critical feedback onabout this bulletin, which is primarily sent via emails only. The public can access the same from our website, kspcb.gov.in. KSPCB is in the process of aggregating the database of contact details of the stake holder industries in Karnataka. Please support this initiative by forwarding the same to your friendly organisations,people and on social networks. Spreading the messsage is as important as creating one! I am in anticipation of your earliest feedback on this. (Dr. Ayi Vamana N Acharya) Chairman KSPCB, Karnataka email:chairman.kspcb@gmail.com

Note: This email is sent, based on the database agregated by KSPCB, during its course of activities. KSPCB values privacy of people and organisations, and you can always opt out of this mailing list. If so, Please send a blank mail with subject line: UNSUBSCRIBE

• Karnataka State Pollution Control Board is implementing the various provisions of Water, Air & Environmental Protection Acts. Board is regulating the discharge of effluents, emissions and solid waste generated by various industries and other organizations by issuing consents and authorizations under the provisions of the above said Acts and Rules. The issue of consent is followed with monitoring of the industries to verify the compliance to be conditions imposed and initiation of action as per law in case of violations. • The work load of the Board is increasing day by day, whereas the staff strength has not increased commensurate with the work load. On the other hand the organizations covered by the Board are expecting a better service and quick decisions on their applications. There is also a need to simplify the procedures, avoid duplication of work and ensure quick, efficient and effective service. Besides, there is an urgent need to reduce paper work so that the time saved could be used for effective monitoring of polluting activities. • The subject was discussed in detail in the 182nd Board Meeting held on 20-12-2011. Board took cognizance to the decisions taken on the above matter in the various Board Meetings till date as follows: • Instead of issuing separate consents under Water and Air Act, combined consent under both Acts is being issued from 2006. • Consent for operation under Large –Red & Orange, Medium Red & Orange, are being issued for two years with an option for annual renewal. • Power has been delegated to Regional Officers for issue of CFE/CFOs for Green category industries/ organizations. • Power has been delegated to SEOs for issue of CFE/CFOs for Orange category industries/ organizations. • CFE and CFO issued for 2 and 5 years respectively by collecting one year consent fee in respect of DG Sets in transmission towers, malls, banks and commercial establishments. • Procedure simplified for issue of consent for installation of new/ additional DG Sets up to 1000 KVA by existing industries • In the 137th Board Meeting held during 2001 consent to Green category industries was being issued for 10 years under both Acts by collecting one year fee with capital investment up to Rs. 25 lakhs. Consent validity period for Green category was placed before the Board during 2005 in 159th board Meeting enhancing the ceiling limit from Rs.25 Lakhs to Rs. 100 lakhs as it will considerably reduce the administrative work of the Board and industry. • Board also took note of the Karnataka Industrial Policy 2009 – 2014 issued by Department of Industries & Commerce, Government of Karnataka which indicates various intensives and concessions given to various sectors of the industries and has defined investment slabs for categorization of industries as Large, Medium & Small. • After a detailed discussion Board took following decision to revise the investment slabs for Large, Medium & Small industries and other activities keeping in view of the Karnataka Industrial Policy 2009 – 2014 and revised the consent validity periods issued for various categories of industries & activities in order to reduce the paper work and to improve the consent Management. Hence, the following order is issued.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Amendment to delegation of powers to issue directions under Section 33(A) & 31(A) of the Water & Air Act respectively to the Head of the Regional Office. Ref: 1. Proceedings of the 147th Board Meeting held on 27-09-2002 2. KSPCB/CC/OM/2002-03/5285, Dated: 11-12-2002 3. Proceedings of the 185th Board Meeting held on 09-10-2012 The Board in its 147th Meeting held on 27.9.2002 had passed a resolution empowering heads of the Regional Offices to issue directions in cases where the industry has never obtained a valid consent or authorization to establish or operate under the relevant provisions of the Acts and Rules. Further, the Board in its 185th meeting held on 09-10-2012 has again deliberated on the subject based on some representations from the industry/industry associations and resolved to amend the delegation of powers to the head of the Regional Office and hence the following modified order is issued with immediate effect.

ORDER

“The Head of the Regional Office to issue closure directions under section 33(A) and 31 (A) with the prior approval from the Board Office in case any industry/activity has never obtained a valid consent or authorization to establish or operate under the relevant provisions of the Acts and Rules. The Board Office shall give its approval within 30 days from the date of receipt of proposal otherwise it shall be considered as deemed approval by RO to proceed with Closure direction”. The procedure may also include a personal hearing, wherever found to be necessary, after recording in writing the necessity of such personal hearing. The word, ‘opportunity of being heard’ under Sec. 21 of Air Act need not necessarily mean ‘personal hearing’, but simply an opportunity of hearing the party’s claims, which can also be in a written form. Hence conducting a personal hearing with physical presence can be restored to only in important and necessary cases. Appropriate actions referred to at (1) include issue of proposed directions under Section 33(A) of Water Act and 31(A) of Ait Act, to ensure closure/prohibition/regulations of any industry, operation or process or stoppage or regulation of electricity, water supply or any other services for the industries. The review in all such cases will lie to the Consent Committee in the HO. The Chairman can also call for any such file for review and issuance of necessary direction. For any other violations on the part of the industry, which is running with a valid consent or had once obtained CFE/CFO in the past., the RO shall inspect and report to the Board Office.
