Cement producer told to take ecological precautions
Cement manufacturer Jaypee Associates has been directed by the Himachal Pradesh High Court to ensure protection of environment and ecology at Baga village in Solan district where the company is establishing its cement plant.
The High Court also directed it to carry out restoration work of two temples as well as construct a bus stand at a suitable place. While passing this direction the court also directed the villagers of the area to give access to the workers of the company and also allow transportation of heavy machinery for channelization of Bhalag Nallah and restoration of other works.
A division bench comprising Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Rajiv Sharma passed this order after perusing the report filed by the three member expert committee constituted by the court for recommending the short term measures to be taken by the company to save the ecology of the area.
