Major battery manufacturer, Amara Raja, has been ordered to extend the suspension of two units for the next six weeks for allegedly flouting pollution norms.

 

The High Court has given the order after the Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board (APPCB) gave notices of closure stating that the two plants of Amara Raja were flouting pollution norms.

 

Amara Raja’s plants in Karakambadi, Tirupati and Nunegundlapalli Village, Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh will be shut for six weeks.

 

The case is being heard from May and the next court hearing is scheduled for Sep 27, 2021. The High Court has directed the company to file an affidavit explaining measures taken towards the safety of workers and staff and submit blood samples of its workers to verify the extent of lead presence.
