Notice issued to 8 water purification plants in Haldwani

NAINITAL: The state food security department has issued notices to eight water purification plants in Haldwani for flouting various norms, including running without a licence from Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and without paying taxes for several years.
Kailash Tamta, food supply officer, Nainital district said, “These plants were running without a licence from the BIS or any requisite approval from the concerned departments for years. Notices were served to them on Saturday. They have to give clarification and explanation on four vital points within ten days of stipulated time period.”
The notices have sought details of test reports of the water purifiers operating in the plants equipped with reverse osmosis or ultra violet filtration technique. Monthly reports of the quality of water filtered in these plants also have to be submitted.
Plant owners will also have to present records, dating back to three years, of the operating machines, revenue, maintenance and other relevant details. Medical reports of the employees working in the plants has also been sought.
The move comes after media reports highlighted various norms being flouted by the water purification plants.
Commenting on the issue, city magistrate Harveer Singh said, “We are always vigilant on the issue of public concern. As soon as we came to know about illegally running plants, action was taken.”
