The CPCB on Monday told the bench of Justice Madan B. Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta that it had received complaints against people and industry contributing to pollution in its social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook and the same were forwarded to the nodal officers but no action was taken on them.
In all, the CPCB had told the bench, it had received 746 complaints on pollution in the national capital and NCR in its social media accounts.
The court was also informed that another nearly 30,000 such units were there and an eight-week time was sought to shut them down and remove them from non-conforming areas.
Allowing the plea for time, court directed the next listing of the matter in January.
