       In the field of e-Governance programme of GPCB, vizly. XGN (eXtension Green
Node) was launched by Shri Mangubhai Patel, Hon'ble Minister, Tribal Development,
Forest & Environment on 5th June- the World Environment Day, 2008. XGN software
programme facilitates all concerned to file their application online. Similar facility has been
introduced to facilitate applicants applying for authorisation under the Bio-Medical Waste
(Management and Handling) Rules, 1998, w.e.f. 15.2.2009. This shall enable all applicants
seeking clearances under laws to file their applications through internet facilities. During
the year under report, bottlenecks are being addressed in this regard.
        During the period under report Shri D. Rajgopalan, IAS, Chief Secretary to the
Government of Gujarat who is also the Chairperson of the Task Force for implementation of
the Air Action Plan reviewed the action taken and efforts made to arrive at successful
results in reducing pollution in Ahmedabad city.
       As per report of the CPCB, Delhi, 85 cities in India monitored periodically, to record
RSPM [Respirable suspended particulate matter] level, shows the ranking of Ahmedabad
continuously improved from 4th in year 2001 to 13th in year 2005, 43rd in year 2006, and
66th in year 2008, position. EPCA (EPCA popularly known as ‘Bhurelal Committee’)

6.10 The Municipal Solid Wastes (Management & Handling) Rules, 2000
       The MSW (M & H) Rules 2000 came into force from 25.9.2000. It is obligatory on the part
       of all the municipal authorities to arrange for collection, segregation, transportation and
       suitable disposal of municipal wastes of the municipal towns/cities. They need to obtain
       authorisation of the GPCB for the compliance of these Rules. Under these rules all
       municipal authorities responsible for collection, segregation, storage, transportation,
       processing & disposal of municipal solid wastes are covered.
       The municipal authority or an operator of a facility needs to make an application in Form-I,
       for grant of authorization for setting up of waste processing and disposal facility including
       landfills, to the state Board.
       As of now, there are 159 Nagarpalika, 7 Municipal Corporations, 5 Notified Areas and 1
       Urban Development Authority in the State of Gujarat are identified by this Board. So far as
       responsible authority to comply with the MSW Rules-2000.
       The validity of authorisation issued to 141 Local bodies has expired on 31.12.2008. The
       Board has prior to expiry of authorisation instructed all ULBs to obtain authorisation.
       The concept of common secured landfills is applied in the State for treatment and disposal
       of the Municipal Solid Waste generated in the towns and cities. Govt. of Gujarat has
       constituted Gujarat Urban Development Co. Ltd. to undertake the Municipal Solid Waste
       Management in small and medium cities across the state. The GUDCL has proposed 17
       clusters consisting 110 ULBs and additional 41 ULBs are linked with Municipal
       Corporations located in close proximity. Nine ULBs brought within ambit of GERRP-
       Gujarat Earthquake Rehabilitation and Reconstruction project. The issue of landfill site
       selection for remaining 34 ULBs is under consideration and resolve subsequently by
       GUDCL. The MSW generated from ULBs located within such clusters, shall be treated by
       vermi-composting. The vermi-composting plant at 72 ULBs are in operation and at 23
       ULBs work are under progress.
       The development activities of landfill for Khambhat Cluster and Himmatnagar cluster are
       under progress. Gujarat Maritime Board has already developed and commissioned landfill
       site for Alang Notified Area. Surat Municipal Corporation has developed landfill site. The
       Vadodara and Rajkot Municipal Corporation has started construction of landfill site.
       Jamnagar, Bhavnagar and Junagadh Municipal Corporations have not yet started activities
       to develop landfill site for disposal of Municipal Solid Waste.

6.11   The Batteries (Management & Handling) Rules, 2001

       The Batteries (Management & Handling) Rules came into existence with effect from 16th
       of May 2001 under powers conferred to Environment Protection Act, 1986.
       Under these rules, every manufacturer, importer, reconditioner, assembler, dealer, recycler,
       auctioneer, consumer and bulk consumer involved in manufacture, processing, sale,
       repurchase & use of batteries or components thereof is covered.
       For the implementation of these rules in the state of Gujarat, Gujarat Pollution Control
       Board started inventory, which is an on- going process, and until now, 538 shops engaged
       in battery sales, services monitored.
       The Board advised all Manufacturers to publish an advertisement in local dailies at least
       twice in a year to create awareness among public regarding the use of lead acid batteries
       and statutory requirement under the Batteries (Management & Handling) Rules, 2001.



                                              22
       Seminars, workshops were organised to educate people involved in battery activities for
       effective implementation of these Rules.
       The Board receives half yearly returns in prescribed forms specified for each category viz.
       manufacturer, importer, reconditioner, assembler, recycler, auctioneer, consumer and bulk
       consumer. These returns are scrutinised and annual report is submitted to CPCB
       periodically.
       The Dealers are required to file half yearly return to the manufacturer. Even though, the
       Board is carrying out monitoring of these Dealers. The Board also guide to fill up half
       yearly returns. In order to protect environment they are also being educated about the
       concept of buy back of used lead acid batteries and advantage thereof. This will help to
       discourage unorganised sector of unauthorised transaction of lead acid batteries.

6.13. Air Action Plans- Plans - Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Bharuch, Surat, Rajkot,
     Jamnagar, Vapi & Gandhinagar.
     [1] Ahmedabad Air Pollution Control Action Plan
         During the period under report, EPCA – [Environment Pollution (Prevention &
         Control) Authority] constituted as per the Supreme Court’s order by the MoEF, GoI,
         under the Chairmanship of Shri Bhure Lal, accompanied with Ms Sunita Narain,
         Member, EPCA conducted special review meeting on 26.7.2008 with respect to BRTS
         project of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation at Ahmedabad and another meeting on
         5.2.2009 at Delhi.
         EPCA complemented all the officials and noted that the progress made in the
         implementation of the Air Action Plan for Ahmedabad was very satisfactory. They
         anticipated continuity of similar trend in future.
          Bringing down Air Pollution level in Ahmedabad
         Through the implementation of the Air Pollution Action Plan, it has been possible to
         bring down SPM [suspended particulate matter and RSPM [Respirable suspended
         particulate matter] in the city of Ahmedabad significantly.
         The results of Ambient Air Quality monitoring in Residential areas under NAMP
         program indicate RSPM 80 microgram per cubic meter in year 2008, 83 microgram
         per cubic meter in year 2007, against 96 in year 2006, 134 in year 2005 and as high as
         198 in year 2001.
         85 cities in India monitored periodically, to record RSPM [Respirable suspended
         particulate matter] level, under the NAMP [National Ambient Monitoring
         Programme], the report of the CPCB, Delhi for polluting cities based on ambient air
         quality, shows the ranking of Ahmedabad improved from 4th in year 2001 to, 13th in
         year 2005, 43rd in year 2006 and 66th in the year 2008, position.
         At Nehru Bridge, RSPM was found 158 microgram per cubic metre in 2005 which has
         come down to 133 in year 2006, 105 in year 2007, and measured 112 in year 2008.
         Air quality is monitored at 14 stations and they overall indicates fall in SPM and
         RSPM. In regard to SO2 [sulphur dioxides] and NOx [oxides of nitrogen] which are the
         other relevant parameters in assessing the quality of air, in all stations, they remained
         within limits.
         Progress achieved :
         The major milestones achieved in implementation of Ahmedabad Air Action Plan are
         as follows:

6.16. Ambient Air Quality Monitoring
          Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Programme (AAQM)
          Under the Ambient Air Quality Monitoring programme (AAQM) the Board continued to
          monitor ambient air quality at Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Vapi, Bharuch and Rajkot.

          The ambient air quality samples were collected as per the standard norms for ambient air
          quality monitoring. The parameters determined during analysis included SPM, RSPM, SO2
          and NOX. The data pertaining to the ambient air meteorological data were regularly
          submitted to the CPCB [Central Pollution Control Board] for compilation and preparation
          of report.

          Note:   The National Ambient Air Quality Monitoring project is re-launched and necessary
                  actions have been initiated to re-commission this project.

              pollutant. Standards in this regard are laid down under The Environment (Protection) Act,
              1986 (and rules made there under) and under the Model Rules of the Factories Act, 1948
              for occupational health and safety purposes. The ambient air quality standards in respect
              of noise as notified under the Noise Pollution (Regulation & Control) Rules, 2000 are as
              under:

               categories by the Competent Authority and the corresponding standards shall apply.

        0.     dB(A) Leq denotes the time weighted average of the level of sound in decibels on Scale
               A which is relatable to human hearing.

               “A” in dB(A) Leq denotes the frequency weighting in the measurement of noise and
               corresponds to frequency response characteristics of the human ear.

               Leq: It is energy mean of the noise level over a specified period.

Observations
          The ambient noise levels in Gujarat during the monitoring period at all time were above
          specified ambient noise standards. The fire cracker bursting and traffic are two important
          contributors of ambient noise. Residential areas were affected significantly by higher noise
          levels. The emission of smoke arising out of bursting of fire crackers added into increased
          levels of air pollution, particularly in terms of Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), SPM and Respirable
          Suspended Particulate Matter.
          It is said that a special mission is required to make the people aware of the noise and air
          pollution and its adverse effects on environment and health. This needs to be supported by
          capacity building in the regulatory agencies for effective implementation of the noise
          standards. Role of NGOs and voluntary agencies is crucial and they can cause the process of
          improvement.
