Change in air quality prompts KSPCB to upgrade monitoring 2.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Apart from monitoring the standard air pollutants in the atmosphere, Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) will soon start monitoring more harmful chemicals. KSPCB presently monitors sulphur dioxide, suspended particulate matter, repairable suspended particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide. But now, as per the recent announcement by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the KSPCB will measure more air pollutants such as Ozone and Benzene. "There is a need to measure more pollutants because times have changed. What we measure now was relevant 10 years ago. Bangalore is now an IT City. This means that there are more number of people residing here, thus there are more number of vehicles on the roads. Therefore, more burnt and unburnt fuel is released. ...Fuel combustion and construction industries are a major worry for Bangaloreans. There is also more e-waste and garbage generated. Ten years ago, all this was not relevant and chimney pollution was considered as pollution. Now, things have ...

Despite HC diktat, KSPCB has no plans for safer Deepavali 20.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) hasn't put in place any special plans to check pollution during the Deepavali despite being ordered by the High Court to take stringent measures to that effect. The court had taken serious note of the increasing levels of noise and air pollution in Bangalore and directed the KSPCB to take stringent measures to control them. KSPCB Chairman Vaman Acharya said there were no special measures in place this year. "But we have requested the police and the sales tax department to strictly follow the Explosives Act which bans the sale of crackers in residential and busy commercial spaces. Although crackers can be sold for five days during the festival, the sellers should have proper documents like fire safety clearance, sales tax and VAT payment papers. The sales tax department will also conduct special drives along with the police. Those found selling crackers at places other than the designated points will be brought to book," he told Deccan Herald. Bursting ...
