COMMENTS

 

When polluting plant to be removed

It has been held that manufacturing of medicines by installing a boiler in a residential area which causes emission of smoke is detrimental to the physical comfort and health of the public at large. In such a case removal of factory ordered by the SDM was valid; Krishna Gopal v. State of Uttar Pradesh, 1986 Cr LR 11 (MP).

 

Imposition of stringent conditions

The Supreme Court has held that since chlorine gas is danger­ous to the life and health of the general public after any leak­age from a storage tank, cylinder or any other point during its production, the health and welfare of the workers and public at large living in surrounding areas may be put to risk. Accordingly the Foods & Fertilizer Industries were imposed stringent condi­tions to carry on such production so that such an eventuality may be prevented; M.C. Mehta v. Union of India , AIR 1987 SC 965.
