Public Input Sought on Draft Guidelines for Petrol Depots

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) is inviting public comments on a draft Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for Petrol Depots.

In April 2023, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) Eastern Zone Bench directed the CPCB to develop SOPs for petrol depots.

This initiative aims to minimize environmental impact and ensure safe operations at petrol stations.

Public Participation:

  • The CPCB has prepared a draft SOP and is now seeking feedback from the public and relevant stakeholders.
  • This includes individuals, environmental groups, and representatives of the petroleum industry.

Comments can be submitted electronically to (Sh. Dinabandhu Gouda, Scientist ‘F’, IPC-I Division) and (Sh. Ashbir Singh, Scientist ‘D’, IPC-I Division, CPCB). They can also be sent by post to designated officials at the CPCB headquarters in Delhi.

The CPCB encourages all interested parties to submit their comments by June 6, 2024.
