Industrial Categorization Under UPPCB

Like Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC), UPPCB has classified industries depending on the pollution index. The pollution index of a particular industry signifies whether an industry will fall under the red, orange, green, and white category.

Below-mention are the industrial classification as per pollution index -

Red category - Pollution score index 60 and above
Orange category - Pollution score index 41 to 59
Green category - Pollution score index 21 to 40
White category - Pollution score index incl. And upto 20

To be precise, according to the UPPCB, U.P has 420 grossly polluted industries. These Have been classified as -

  • Industries which are responsible for discharge of effluent directly or indirectly in water courses. It has been further divided into -
    1. Industries taking care of hazardous substances.
    2. Effluent possessing a BOD load of 100 kgs per day or more.
  • The second category includes a combination of above mentioned categories 1 and 2.

To be noted, UP has 221 non-polluting industries and 27 polluting industries, though obtaining Consent to Establish (NOC) is obligatory for both. However, the concerned authorities to obtain NOC differs as UPPCB has decentilized its powers.
