LALITPUR, May 24: The majority of the crusher industries operating inside the Kathmandy valley have not heeded to calls for controlling pollution.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report has shown that the crusher industries have failed to live by their commitment to control pollution, Department of Environment Deputy Director General Safala Shrestha said.
The Department has been regularly monitoring the industries to check the level of pollution they are causing in the environment. "During the inspection we found that these industries have not used any kind of precautionary measures," Shrestha said.
The Department has said it will recommend legal action based on inspection held after complaints at the local units. RSS
