Common Facility Centre to help small industries coming up at Maheshtala
West Bengal Government is taking up a step to provide a Common Facility Centre to save small industries. The Facility Centre will come up at Maheshtala. The MSME Dept of the West Bengal Government will set up this facility Centre and is expected to get help from the Pollution Control Board.
A three-acre land has already been earmarked for the Common Facility Centre. Proper measures are to be taken for controlling pollution in the form of an effluent treatment plant.
At present, around 79 such small industries, which were barred by the Green Tribunal for pollution, are to be relocated at Maheshtala’s Common Facility Centre. These industries dealt with dyeing, bleaching and dress making. In future days, more than three hundred such industries will be relocated.
With the construction of the effluent treatment plant, pollution will be controlled in future days.
