NGT charged Rs 10 crore fine on pharma company Teva API

12th July, 2021 Mumbai

The tribunal said that violation in the matter of illegal extraction of groundwater is clearly established along the pollution of the drain

The National Green Tribunal has slapped a penalty of Rs 10 crore on a pharmaceutical manufacturing company in Amroha district of Uttar Pradesh for violation of environmental norms. A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said it is surprising to note that a big global company like Teva API Ltd operating hazardous activity of manufacturing Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) is in operation without adequate safeguards and is unconcerned about violation of environmental norms.

The tribunal said that violation in the matter of illegal extraction of groundwater is clearly established along the pollution of the drain.

There is also violation of safety norms and mere denial is not enough, the NGT said adding that the unit has to be held liable to pay compensation for the violations to cover the cost of restoration of the environment and also to take remedial action to prevent such occurrences in future.

"Having regard to the nature of violations in the present case and the financial capacity of the unit in question, we determine the compensation amount at Rs 10 crore which amount may be deposited with the District Magistrate within one month.
