on the orders of Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal,a team of the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) conducted a formal verification of the 61 dyeing units to give them a clean chit. This means that owing to political pressure,power will be restored to these erring units again.
Though official orders to resume the power supply have not been sent to the Punjab Sate Electricity Board (PSEB),the PPCB officials have sent the report to their head office in Patiala.
Sources,meanwhile,confirmed that a formal letter will reach the PSEB office by tomorrow morning.
V K Goyal,one of the members of the Federation of Dyeing Factories Association,said,After finding that no unit discharges effluents in the Buddha Nallah,electricity supply should be restored to all the 61 industries. We are hopeful that the orders will reach by tomorrow morning.
PSEB officials,meanwhile,are on the edge. They have to go into the field to disconnect power which has now to be re-connected. The PSEB officials said it has become a routine process and the entire exercise leaves them at the receiving end.
