HYDERABAD: The TS Pollution Control Board (TSPCB) ordered closure of five pharmaceutical companies in Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district for causing pollution and violating multiple norms.

The following 5 pharmaceutical firms have been issued the closure order:

  • Brundavan Laboratories in Yelagiri in Choutuppal mandal,
  • Ravoos Laboratories,
  • SVR Laboratories,
  • VJ Sai Chem,
  • Chemic Life Sciences.

All located in Dhotigudem village of Pochampally mandal.

The TSPCB had issued closure notices to these firms between 2017 and 2020. The firms requested the board to allow them to reopen, on the condition that they would rectify the same.

However, residents of Anthemmagudem and Dhotigudem villages again lodged complaints against these companies.

The board then constituted a ‘rolling task force’ to inspect the industries and carried out five inspections between January 6 and February 8.

The team found several violations by all five firms, such as prevalence of odour, leakages, absence of several mandatory components to control pollution, etc.

On February 19, a hearing was held for the firms which was attended by complainants and industry representatives.

Following discussions, the committee recommended closure of the industries, and directed that they would also forfeit bank guarantee of Rs 2 lakh with the board.

As per an order issued on March 2, the TSPCB directed the industries to immediately stop all industrial activities. It also directed TSSPDCL to disconnect power supply to the industries.
