HC orders inspection of Pissurlem site

Panaji: The high court of Bombay at Goa on Friday issued notices to the Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB) for failing to act against three industrial units discharging toxic waste water thereby damaging a farmer's field and plantation at Pissurlem in the Sattari taluka.

Farmer Manohar Mahadev Parab, through his counsel Aires Rodrigues, submitted before the high court that despite various complaints, the authorities had failed to act against the three polluting industrial units at the Pissurlem Industrial Estate, located adjacent to his paddy field and plantation area.

The GSPCB has now been directed to conduct an inspection and submit its report to the court on June 7.

Parab further submitted that he was being deprived of his only source of income due to the damage caused to his crops and property, and prayed that the three polluting industrial units be directed to compensate him for his loss of livelihood.
