The GPCB continued its efforts towards environment related better pollution control and improved management. Several critical issues in the field of environment are being tackled by the Board through its existing Regional Offices located at Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Bharuch, Surat, Vapi, Rajkot, Jamnagar, Godhra, Mehsana, Bhavnagar, Bhuj, Nadiad and Junagadh. Stress is laid on environmental infrastructures to meet challenges of environmental pollution under the ‘Swarnim Gujarat’ programmes of Government of Gujarat. Though basic functions of the Board is remained as regulatory, it has also been organising various awareness programmes, from time to time on local issues of municipal solid wastes, biomedical wastes, plastic issues besides water, air and land pollution generated from various industrial clusters. Efforts are being made for pollution control with a view to minimize and prevent pollution. The GPCB, Head Office, Gandhinagar has been registered by the BIS- Bureau of Indian Standards, Delhi under the Quality Management Systems in accordance with IS/ISO 9001:2000. The Board continued to make joint efforts with concerned Government offices, Municipal Corporations, Municipalities, hospitals, towns and municipalities, educational institutions, Industries Associations. etc. Awareness programmes have helped to be an effective tool in detecting and controlling the environmental pollution. In the field of e-Governance programme of GPCB, vizly. XGN (eXtended Green Node) was launched by Shri Mangubhai Patel, Hon'ble Minister, Tribal Development, Forest & Environment on 5th June- the World Environment Day, 2008. During the year under the report, the XGN facility has also been introduced to facilitate filing returns under the Water Cess Act, 1977, and obtaining an online assessment orders. Implementation of this XGN software has been awarded a Silver Award by the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievance, Government of India on 18.2.2010. The Board has been progressing in the field of e-governance. During the period under report, the 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’) mentioned the progress made in the implementation of the Air Action Plan for Ahmedabad as satisfactory.

Despite pro-active efforts by various Government Authorities, the MoEF, GoI issued office memorandum dt.13.1.2010 declared Ankleshwar, Vapi, Ahmedabad, Vatva, Bhavnagar and Junagadh as critically polluted areas among few others in the country. An appeal was made during various meetings organised with industries associations to industrialist to take necessary pollution control measures, adopt clean technology, reduce wastes or else face action. Meetings were also held with NGOs and public participation was sought from public. Copy of this appeal displayed at all the offices of the Board. Of course, MoEF issued revised order dated 15.3.02010 and declared Ankleshwar, Panoli, Vapi, Odhav, Naroda, Vatva, Narol industrial area, Chitra-Bhavnagar and few industrial pockets of Junagadh as critically polluted areas. Action Plans for each of these places are being prepared by the Board in consultation with F&ED, Govt. of Gujarat, CPCB - Delhi and MoEF, GoI in addition to other stackholders like the GIDC, GCPC and concerned industries associations / CETP operators. During the year under report, second round of departmental examinations were conducted as per GPCB (Recruitment) Rules, 2007.

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 Board had granted authorisation with validity of five years to 152 local bodies which expired on 31-12-2008. In this year 43 local bodies have applied for the authorisation under MSW Rules-2000. Scrutinising the applications, Board has granted authorisation to 29 ULBs, refused to 14 ULBs. The Board continuously monitors the progress and action initiated by local bodies. But response from Urban Local Bodies are poor. The Board also took up the issue with the District Collectors and the Director of Municipalities to expedite all urban bodies in implementing these rules. The concept of common secured landfills is adopted in the State for treatment and disposal of the Municipal Solid Waste generated in the towns and cities. The Government of Gujarat has constituted a Nodal Agency, Gujarat Urban Development Company Ltd for development of infrastructure for treatment, transportation and disposal. With detailed study of the each and every municipalities, it is ultimately arrived on to provide treatment

22

facilities(i.e. vermi- composting) at the town level and to develop the regional landfill site for the cluster of municipalities in @ 50km radius and connected with road network. GUDC has initiated the preparation of operational plan for the implementation of MSW. It is proposed to construct one common landfill site between seven or more towns. The land identified located at fairly equal distance from these towns. The GUDC has divided area of Gujarat in to four different regions and identified 24 clusters for Regional Landfill site for different local bodies located in Gujarat. In addition 7 Municipal Corporations are developing their individual landfill sites, Among them Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodara has commissioned the landfills, Rajkot Municipal Corporation is developing the landfill, Jamnagar, Bhavnagar and Junagadh are in process to prepare DPR. It is also emphasised by the Board to allow nearby towns, municipalities to dispose their non compostable municipal waste at the landfills of Municipal Corporation. Details 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.
