Sterlite awaits SC verdict

Sterlite Industries is awaiting the verdict of the Supreme Court on allowing the company to continue operation at its smelting plant in Tamil Nadu.

The subsidiary of the UK-based Vedanta group challenged the Madras High Court order for shutting down its smelting plant for alleged non-compliance of environmental norms.

Earlier, the apex court had taken on record the joint investigation report of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) on the emission control and effluent treatment measures undertaken by Sterlite Industries' copper plant at Tuticorin.

The report had stated that the company had fulfilled all the norms and measures suggested. In an interim direction on October 1, 2010, the apex court had stayed the operation of the Madras High Court order for closure of the plant.

The TNPCB had earlier told the court that it had directed the company to comply with various norms relating to treatment and effective disposal of the effluents allegedly containing high amounts of gypsum, discharged from the Sterlite unit in Tuticorin.

The bench had also recorded an undertaking from Sterlite Industries that it has complied with all the "green belt" and "health" facilities norms required for ensuring public safety and health.
