The Te­lan­gana State Pol­lu­tion Con­trol Board (TSPCB) has asked 18 in­dus­tries to pay `1 crore to the Fish­er­men Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­ety as com­pen­sa­tion for caus­ing the death of fish in the Gandigu­dem Lake at Sulthanpur.

This de­ci­sion has been made based on a val­u­a­tion re­port re­gard­ing the dam­age caused by the in­dus­tries sub­mit­ted by the Dis­trict Fish­eries Of­fi­cer of San­gareddy.

The TSPCB has also di­rected 11 in­dus­tries to pay `40,000 as com­pen­sa­tion to fish­er­men for caus­ing the death of fish in the Ayyamma Cheruvu at Gad­dapotharam.

The hear­ing was at­tended by the Dis­trict Fish­eries Of­fi­cer of San­gareddy and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Fish­er­men Co-op­er­a­tive So­ci­eties of Gandigu­dem and Gad­dapotharam.

The Com­mit­tee ex­am­ined the anal­y­sis re­ports pre­pared on the ba­sis of sam­ples col­lected from the tanks, drains in their vicin­ity, and the in­dus­tries.
