  • 6.10. The Municipal Solid Wastes (Management & Handling) Rules, 2000 The MSW (M & H) Rules 2000 came into force from 25/9/2000. It is obligatory on the part of

    all the municipal authorities to arrange for collection, segregation, transportation and suitable disposal of municipal wastes of the municipal towns/ cities. They need to obtain authorisation of the GPCB for the compliance of these Rules. Under these rules all municipal authorities responsible for collection, segregation, storage, transportation, processing & disposal of municipal solid wastes are covered.

    The municipal authority or an operator of a facility needs to make an application in Form-I, for grant of authorization for setting up of waste processing and disposal facility including landfills, to the state Board.

    As of now, there are 159 Nagarpalika, 7 Municipal Corporations, 5 Notified Areas and 1 Urban Development Authority in the State of Gujarat. Many LBs [Local Bodies] have declared as ULBs [Urban Local Bodies] by the State Government.

    Out of 172, the Board granted authorization to 141 local bodies. Recently, notified ULBs [Urban Local Bodies] are yet to obtain authorisation of the Board.

    The concept of common secured landfills is applied in the State for treatment and disposal of the Municipal Solid Waste generated in the State. As a result, GUDCL, identified 13 clusters inclusive of 96 ULBs. 39 ULBs are linked with various Municipal Corporations and AUDA. 9 ULBs brought within ambit of GERRP- Gujarat Earthquake Rehabilitation and Reconstruction project. The issue of landfill site selection for remaining 23 ULBs, shall be resolved subsequently, by GUDCL. The MSW generated from ULBs located within such clusters, shall be disposed of vermi-composting for 150 ULBs and microbial composting for 11 ULBs of 1 lakh population. The vermi-composting plant at 15 ULBs are in operation and plants for 78 ULBs are under progress.

    In accordance with the notification dated 14.9.2006, published by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, New Delhi, the common municipal solid wastes management facilities shall obtain environmental clearance from the SEIAA(State Environmental Impact Assessment Authority) of the State.

    Following municipalities initiated activity to develop MSW disposal site: 1. Gariadhar (dist: Bhavnagar) 2. Talaja (dist: Bhavnagar)

    3. Gadhada (dist: Bhavnagar) 4. Chalala (dist: Bhavnagar)

    5. Lathi (dist: Amreli) 6. Bagasara (dist: Amreli)

    Alang/Sosiya notified area site is already developed.

    6.11. The Batteries (Management & Handling) Rules, 2001 The Batteries (Management & Handling) Rules came into existence with effect from 16th of

    May 2001 under powers conferred to Environment Protection Act, 1986.

    Under these rules, every manufacturer, importer, reconditioner, assembler, dealer, recycler, auctioneer, consumer and bulk consumer involved in manufacture, processing, sale, repurchase & use of batteries or components thereof is covered.

    21

  • For the implementation of these rules in the state of Gujarat, Gujarat Pollution Control Board started inventory, which is an on- going process, and until now, 533 shops engaged in battery sales, services monitored.

    The Board advised all Manufacturers to publish an advertisement in local dailies at least twice in a year to create awareness among public regarding the use of lead acid batteries and statutory requirement under the Batteries (Management & Handling) Rules, 2001. Seminars, workshops were organised to educate people involved in battery activities for effective implementation of these Rules. On 13.2.2008, the Tudor India Ltd., organised such awareness programme at Palanpur.

    The Board receives half yearly returns in prescribed forms specified for each category viz. manufacturer, importer, reconditioner, assembler, recycler, auctioneer, consumer and bulk consumer. These returns are scrutinised and annual report is submitted to CPCB periodically. The Dealers are required to file half yearly return to the manufacturer. Even though, the Board is carrying out monitoring of these Dealers. The Board also guide to fill up half yearly returns. In order to protect environment they are also being educated about the concept of buy back of used lead acid batteries and advantage thereof. This will help to discourage unorganised sector of unauthorised transaction of lead acid batteries.

    6.12. Collection of Water Cess The Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Cess, Act 1977 provides for levy and

    collection of cess from the industries and local authorities for the water consumed by them. With a view to augment the resources of the Central and the State Boards for the Prevention and Control of Pollution, the Government of India have made necessary rules under the said Act which were notified on 26th July 1978 under Section 17 of the Act. The Gujarat Pollution Control Board has been declared as an Authority for collecting water cess from the industries and local bodies in the State. Under Section 6 of the said Act, powers to levy and effect recovery of water cess have been delegated to the Member Secretary of the Board and powers to remit the recovery to the Central Government under Section 6 (4) of the Act has been conferred to the Board by the State Government.

    Under Section 13 of the said Act, a provision has been made for appeal by any person or local body aggrieved by an order of the cess assessment. For this, an Appellate Committee, headed by the Chairman of the Board, has been constituted.

    The status regarding the assessment of water cess collection was as follow:

    Bharat II vehicles are made compulsory. Registration of new vehicles is allowed only as per Bharat II compliance.

    RTO checked vehicles. About 12 industrial units installed ESP and about 28 units installed bag filters in Vapi GIDC.

    This help in reduction of RSPM and SPM levels both in GIDC area and Vapi Town. From July 2006 onwards RSPM and SPM levels have shown continuous declining trend with readings of RSPM touching 60 micrograms per Nm3.

    Ambient air quality monitoring is carried out at six critical stations. For supply of Natural gas :

    - Gujarat Gas Company laid 33.2 km. gas distribution network pipeline in GIDC Vapi & Sarigam. GGCL is signing with customers in Vapi, Sarigam, Bhilad & Morai areas for gas supply.

    Under the Ambient Air Quality Monitoring programme (AAQM) the Board continued to monitor ambient air quality at Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Vapi, Bharuch and Rajkot.

    The ambient air quality samples were collected as per the standard norms for ambient air quality monitoring. The parameters determined during analysis included SPM, RSPM, SO2 and NOX. The data pertaining to the ambient air meteorological data were regularly submitted to the CPCB [Central Pollution Control Board] for compilation and preparation of report.

    Note: The National Ambient Air Quality Monitoring project is re-launched and necessary actions have been initiated to re-commission this project.
