This bunch of writ petitions involves common issues for decision, thus, at the request of all the learned counsel appearing for the parties, the matter was heard finally andis being decided by this Judgment.
These writ petitions have been filed in view of the minutes of the meeting dated 04.07.2007, where by issue per taining to discharge of trade effluent by the petitioner sand like industries in reference to the capacity of CETP was considered. It was found that due to the increase of production capacities by the industrial units in three different industrial areas, discharge of trade effluent became excess than what was measured in the year, 2004 and as the increase capacity was in violation of the provisions of Section 25 of the Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 thus, the petitioner – industries should not be allowed to work with the increase production capacity as NOC was not taken from the Rajasthan Pollution Board. The issue is, thus, as to whether the petitioner –industries can be allowed to run with an increased production capacity or to be restricted to work with the industrial production capacity as existing in the year. 2004.
