The SC has pulled up the Cen­tre for “mak­ing money” at the cost of cit­i­zens' health by al­low­ing dump­ing of haz­ardous waste from for­eign coun­tries. A bench headed by CJI Khe­har termed the is­sue as “im­por­tant” and said the au­thor­i­ties can­not by­pass the reg­u­la­tions as the peo­ple of the coun­try are fac­ing the con­se­quences. “You (the Cen­tre) are tak­ing waste from other coun­tries and al­low­ing it to be dumped here,” the bench said.
