As per policy of the Board, the industries are at liberty to get
the samples of their effluent/ air emissions/ noise as
applicable, analyzed either from the Board's Lab or from any
other Labs recognized by the Board for the purpose of renewal of
CTO. In case any such unit makes request for sampling and
testing of their samples of effluent/ air emissions/ noise from
the Board Labs then the ROs will update the list of such units
in the software system on regular bases and sampling program for
such units will be issued separately from H.O. through software
The detail of such pending samples, requested by the units, will be submitted by RO immediately after notification of this policy and no such samples will be collected by ROs at their own level.
Thrust will be given that units obtain CTO for 5 years in case of Red category, 10 year in case of orange category and 15 years in case of Green Category of industries to minimize necessity of inspections.
