Members of Tamil Nadu Packaged Drinking Water Manufacturers Association (TPDWMA) observed a day-long fast in the city on Tuesday. The fast was undertaken to urge the government to consider their charter of demands, including categorisation of certified bottling plants as non-polluting and exemption from purview of Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board, and declaration of packaged drinking water manufacturing as an essential industry under ‘green’ category and exemption from obtaining no objection certificate under government order 52. “Packaged drinking water manufacturers are small and tiny units, and it is our sincere appeal that the government take our requests into consideration,” said R.Kannan, joint general secretary, TPDWMA.
