‘Will discuss drain issue with NMC’

NASHIK: The Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) has assured industrial bodies of holding a separate meeting with the Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) on the drainage line issue.

There are no drainage lines in Ambad and Satpur industrial estates of MIDC located in civic limits. Industrial bodies like Nashik Industries and Manufacturers’ Association (NIMA), Ambad Industries and Manufacturers’ Association (AIMA) and Nashik District Industries and Exporters’ Association (NDIEA) have been demanding construction of drainage lines in Ambad and Satpur industrial estates.

The issue was again raised by the industrial bodies during a recent meeting of Zilla Udyog Mitra (ZUM). During the meeting, the MIDC said it had recently sent a letter to the municipal corporation for making arrangements for drainage lines. It assured industrialists of holding a separate meeting with the civic body on the issue.

MIDC regional officer (Nashik region) Ramdas Khedkar said, “The civic body is already maintaining roads and streetlights in Satpur and Ambad industrial estates as they are located in its jurisdiction. The NMC has also been recovering property taxes and local body tax from the industries. So, the drainage lines are expected to be constructed by the municipal corporation.”

Earlier, there were few industries in Satpur and Ambad industrial estates of MIDC and water utilisation was also less. As a result, fewer industrial effluents were released. As per an agreement with the MIDC, industries had to create sceptic tanks and soak pits on their plots for drain water treatment. MIDC areas have now expanded and the number of industries and workers has also increased. Moreover, sceptic tanks and soak pits in the plots have become old. So, treating drain water has become a major cause of concern for industries. This has prompted the industrial bodies to seek construction of drainage lines in both the MIDC areas.
