UPPCB to look into pollution by poultry farm

Following a plea alleging operation of illegal poultry farms in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district, the National Green Tribunal has directed the State Pollution Control Board to look into the matter and furnish a report.

A Bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said, “Let the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board [UPPCB] look into the matter, take appropriate action in accordance with law and furnish a factual and action taken report in the matter.”

The directions came when the green panel was hearing a plea moved that alleged pollution caused due to the unscientific disposal of waste from the poultry farms.
