An inquiry committee under the directives of Mayor Sandeep Joshi and municipal commissioner Abhijeet Bangar regarding the decomposition of garbage done by Hanjer Biotech and also the recycling process of the garbage collected by the company has been initiated.
The committee held under Adv. Dharmapal Mehsram, along with five members Jayshree Wadibhasme, Deputy Commissioner Nirbhay Jain, Assistant Commissioner Mahesh Dhami legal officer and Adv. Venkatesh Kaple were present during the first hearing on Monday.On December 19, Meshram had visited Hanger’s project at Bhandewadi and Learned about the composting process and the machines used for the whole operations. During the visit health inspector, Rohidas Rathod provided detailed information, including the figures, regarding the trash supplied by Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC). While reviewing the figures of NMC and Hanjer biotech, a huge difference was noted in the recycled trash. The machines which are being used Hanjer are also not much efficient and are not even capable of handling a large amount of recycling work tension. Hanger Biotech was appointed on April 15, 2009 by Nagpur Municipal Corporation to recycle waste and produce composting from it.Under the agreement, the hanger was expected to process up to 600 metric tons of waste per day. The project was provided to Hanjer Biotech with the conditions to build, operate and transfer. Compost fertilizers are being prepared through recycled waste at Bhandewadi by Hanjer Biotech.
The said project was caught in an incident where a fire began inside the, provided area, on which Meshram had also tossed a question of whether the fire incident was done on purpose or was a done deliberately, with an intention.
During the meeting today, a verbal statement was given regarding waste provided by NMC and the machines use by Hanjer Biotech. Next hearing is scheduled to be on January 3, 2020, said Venkatesh Kaple. In committee has directed Hanjer to submit all the required documents in the next hearing. After this hearing, the final report will be presented to the committee and strict actions will be taken on the officers and employees convicted in this case.
