He added that if the plants or farms want to run their operation, they should strictly follow the guidelines as mandated by relevant Government authorities in this regard.


The chairman added that some people were engaged in opening such plants amid heavily populated areas or in the vicinity of National Highways which is illegal and also increases air and noise pollution.
