Tarapur has been a red zone for pollution. With so many companies, a 50 MLD CETP was to be set up for letting them dispose off their sludge. This 50 MLD CETP has been long delayed. Meanwhile companies have been accused of flouting norms, producing more than permitted capacity. Fines were imposed, which were disputed. The matter reached the The Hon’ble Supreme Court and the Hon’ble National Green Tribunal. The details of the case are too many for me to go into here.
The latest development is that the fines has been revised (downward in most cases) and a fresh report given to the Hon’ble National Green Tribunal. It seems this matter will soon be resolved and the 50 MLD CETP will be functional. This could take anywhere from a few months to a year or more. I’m estimating the time.
See the latest report:
Once this happens, all the companies which have had to cut their production because of lack of CETP facilities will have relief. The smaller companies especially will significantly benefit because some of them have a plant or plants only at Tarapur.
Here’s a list of companies which may benefit along with their market cap. I will do individual research into specific companies and update this thread gradually. This is a list of companies listed on BSE (with their market cap) which will use the CETP when available:
