new Delhi. In view of the increasing pollution in Delhi with the onset of harsh winter, the Delhi government has taken a big decision. In the order issued on Sunday, a strict ban has come into force on the use of coal and other non-approved fuel in industries and commercial establishments. Explaining the restrictions, the officials said that non-compliant factories would be shut down without any warning. The Union government’s Commission for Air Quality Management (CAQM), however, said the use of low-sulphur coal is allowed in thermal power plants. The sanctions implemented are part of a wider policy issued by the CAQM in July last year. The policy lays out area-wise action plans to curb air pollution in Delhi-NCR over the next five years.

Use of unapproved fuels will be banned

Let us tell you that in view of the rising air pollution in Delhi, the authorities have been directed to shut down industries and commercial establishments using non-approved fuel, including coal, without any show cause notice. A senior CAQM official said that heavy fines will also be imposed on units that do not follow the rule. The CAQM panel announced the ban six months ago, giving enough time for all industries to switch to cleaner fuels. But despite this time, non-approved fuels are being used and the situation of air pollution is becoming alarming. The air quality index has been in very poor condition for the past several days.

finally changed the rules

Significantly, these days the Delhi government seems to be in strict mode in view of the pollution situation. The order issued by the commission states that firewood and biomass briquettes can be used for religious purposes and for cremation. There is no restriction on the use of wood or bamboo charcoal for tandoors and grills in hotels, restaurants, banquet halls (with emission control systems) and open eateries or dhabas. Apart from this, the CAQM had earlier issued an order allowing the use of wood charcoal for ironing clothes, but now as per the new order, the use of coal in industrial, domestic and other miscellaneous applications across Delhi-NCR from January 1, 2023. Orders have been issued to ban the use.
