The Madhya Pradesh state government has done away with no objection certificate (NOC) for non-polluting industries in order to create a more industry-friendly environment and provide a reprieve to industries hit by the corona pandemic. It will help attract investments in the sector.

The state government granted reprieve following a circular issued by the state department of commerce, industries and employment to this effect. Earlier, providing NOC was mandatory for all industries and was placed under Public Services Guarantee Act. Now, the Public Services Management Department has removed this rule for non-polluting industries.

This step of the government will provide relief to industries pertaining to the IT sector, electronics, assembly of air coolers and conditioners, dry process, furniture, textiles, handicrafts, etc. The industries that are exempted from obtaining NOC have to prove that their nature of work is environment-friendly.

A list of more than 500 types of industries has been released by the government that will not require NOC for establishing their units in Madhya Pradesh. The use of coal or generators sets for manufacturing, using a dry process, and release of the liquid affluent from the plants have been set as basic criteria to place the units in the non-pollutant category.

The state government has taken steps to boost confidence in the industry sector to revive the economy and attract investment in the state. There is a large chunk of industries that fall in the non-pollutant category but required NOC from the MP Pollution Control Board.
