Follow best practices of waste management: HC to Govt
5/15/2018 11:20:09 PM
Early Times Report
Srinagar, May 15: The J&K High Court on Tuesday directed the state government to follow best practices being used in other states for waste management.
A division bench of the court headed by acting Chief Justice S Ramalingam issued a notice to government while hearing a PIL filed by a Srinagar-based NGO Environmental Policy Group (EPG). Advocate General Jehangir Iqbal Ganai, who appeared on behalf of the government, told the court that Housing and Urban Development department has issued several tenders and few works have already been allotted to some bidders by Srinagar Municipal Corporation for waste management.
Justice S Ramalingam told the government that it must adopt the models of cities where best solid waste management practices are being put into use.
As reported already Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC), SMC and all other Municipal Committees and Councils across the state are dumping 80 to 100% untreated garbage at their respective dumping sites which is in violation of recent interim order of the High Court's division bench which had directed to take only 10% waste to the landfill sites.
Sources said that SMC and JMC have started segregating the waste at source through some NGOs in some selected wards of Srinagar and Jammu cities. But the sanitation staff later on again mix the waste while loading the same in load carriers and compactors which is defeating the whole process of SWM Rules 2016.
Taking a strong notice of inefficient waste management in J&K by different executing agencies, the High Court's division bench of Justice S Ramalingam and Justice M K Hanjura while hearing the PIL on April 4 had issued notice to several government organizations like SMC, JMC, Rural Development Department (RDD), Directorate of Urban Local Bodies, Housing & Urban Development Department, Tourism Department, Horticulture Department and few more government bodies to abide by Solid Waste Management Rules of 2016.
The High Court had sought a status report from these organization by or before May 15 about the status of implementation of waste management schemes. Except Housing and Urban Development Department all the 8 respondent organizations like SMC, JMC Directorate of Rural Development, Agriculture and Horticulture department failed to submit their report before the High Court. The counsels of these departments have sought more time to file their status report which was granted by the High Court. The PIL is listed on June 5.
