The step has been taken in compliance with the National Green Tribunal direction. The DPCC would also prosecute industries that were found violating the environmental norms.

The DPCC said environmental damage of Rs 50,000 was imposed against 800 units who were found throwing solid waste into the drain or discharging untreated effluent into storm water drain.
