HC calls for shifting coal dumped at Haji Bunder Port

The Bombay High Court asked authorities to consider shifting stockpiles of coal at Haji Bunder Port in Mumbai to some other port in Maharashtra or Gujarat to prevent it from polluting the atmosphere and eliminate the risk it poses to local people's health. The suggestion was given by a bench of Justices VM Kanade and Reveti Mohite-Dere which was hearing a PIL alleging health hazards due to dumping of coal at Haji Bunder Port in south Mumbai.

The PIL, filed by Meera Sanyal, former CEO of Royal Bank of Scotland in India, pointed out that 1.5 lakh metric tonnes of imported coal had been kept on 19 acres of land at Haji Bunder Port, which has posed a health hazard to the people.
