Haryana gets concessions on DG sets till November 30
The Haryana Government exemption from the use of diesel generator sets for 20 cases until 30 November was granted by the Supreme Court Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control Authority) (EPCA). Subjects:
Since 15 October EPCA has introduced the GRAP (Graded Response Plan for Ghaziabad, Noida, Greater Noida, Faridabad, and Gurgaon), which prohibit the use of diesel generator sets in Delhi and its surrounding towns. Nevertheless, the Haryana power service recently demanded derogation for colonies not connected to the grid and relying on DG sets until 30 November.
Moreover, five cases were also exempted until 30 November which is entirely dependent on the DG set as a consequence of the non-compliance of electric failures. EPCA however demanded that the Haryana Government ‘return the affidavits and details that the matter was resolved within 8 to 10 days by Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam.’
EPCA has also allowed the use of DG sets as a secondary source / safe for power disruption under some circumstances, under commercial institutions/industries. The body requested the power sector to ensure compliance with controlled supply and to direct industries.
According to EPCA, commercial organizations/industries must hold logbooks for DG backup sets, checked every four weeks.
