Un­treated waste to pile up at Deonar for 4 more years

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE - San­jana Bhalerao

More than a year after a mas­sive fire en­gulfed parts of the city’s largest dump­ing ground, the BMC’S plan to set up a treat­ment plant at the site is still stuck in the ini­tial stages.

Sources said the firms bid­ding to build the plant are de­mand­ing at least four years to set it up. The rea­son: the BMC’S con­di­tions put the onus on them to not only get green clear­ances, but to also clear waste on the 12-hectare plot on which the plant will be built.

The Jan­uary 2016 fire was so se­vere, it forced schools and of­fices to shut down and led to health prob­lems for the area’s res­i­dents for months af­ter­wards.
