Manesar, June 7 (KNN) The micro, small and medium entrepreneurs (MSMEs) from the region have objected to Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority’s (GMDA’s) decision to collect operation charges of CETP in Manesar from industries based on their land areas rather than the nature of the industries.

The Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) was established in IMT Manesar by the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) in 2017.

The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has sought to collect the maintenance and operation charges on CETP from the industrialist.

According the proposal, it was noted to increase the charge by 5 percent annually from September 2018 with immediate effect. It was constructed to curb industrial effluents and promote recycled water among integrated model township (IMT) industries which is now operational with capacity of 55 million litres per day (MLD).

The total area of IMT Manesar is 2,642 acres. In September 2018, as per the GMDA transfer scheme, the authority took over its maintenance and operations at a monthly cost of Rs 1 crore per month.

Last week the State Government has approved the proposal of GMDA to charge for CETP used by industrial units based on their area of operation. This charge will be in addition to maintenance charge collected by the HSIIDC from industries in the integrated model township (IMT) area, according to its Estate Management Policy.

Talking to KNN India, Manmohan Gaind, Secretary General of Manesar Industries Welfare Association (MIWA) said the industries had given 20 acres of land to build CETP which is a good cause. Decision taken by GMDA to hike 5 per cent annual charge for the CETP is not appropriate and we have sent a proposal to the GMDA to rethink their decision.”

He further suggested that in addition to this, industries which helped in contributing land should be charged one-fourth out of total monthly expenditure.

There are varieties of industries established in Manesar and many of them don’t generate a bulk of effluent out of their plants. Effluent generated by the nearby areas of Manesar also comes here and is being treated in the treatment plant. From the upcoming September the charge will be raised by the regulatory authority.

‘’Company which don’t use water or other chemicals will generate less effluent compared to higher consumption and effluent generator ones.  The maintenance charge of CETP should vary according to the company not based on their area of operation. It needs to be planned symmetrically for a healthy charge distribution among the industries,” he added further. (KNN/ VS)
