Srinagar Sep 26 : One house boat which was newly built and its owner approached the LAWDA for its registration. He was advised to plant the sewage treatment system which is prior requisite for the registration.
After endorsing with the district industries center Srinagar and a letter from pollution control board Srinagar addressed to vice chairman LAWDA for grant of NOC for further recommendations for the installation of the STP, LAWDA has refused the NOC for reasons better known to them, complainant said.
When the LAWDA concern authorities are at the helm of affairs for DAL development . When it is the duty of LAWDA to take all measures to save the DAL especially from sewerage. The department did not bother and allow the house boat sewerage to go directly into the DAL to more pollute it , but did not permit for the installation of sewage plant which is meant to process the sewerage as per the norms of center pollution control board
The higher authority may take serious note and a probe may be initiated on what grounds the concern authority did not allow for this Sewage Treatment Plant
