Overview of the Karnataka StatePollution Control Board

Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) was constituted on September 21, 1974, by the Government of Karnataka under the provisions of the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act. KSPCB was formed to prevent and control increasing water pollution and to improve the overall quality of water. But, later, with the enactment of the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, the scope of responsibilities of the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board regarding water pollution control increased to include air pollution. Further, the role of KSPCB became broader with the enactment of various laws regarding the protection of the environment, including the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Cess Act, 1977 and the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986.

The rules which were enacted under the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 are: -

  1. The Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2016
  2. Fly Ash Notification, 1999 and 2008
  3. The Noise Pollution (Regulation & Control) Rules, 2000
  4. Environmental Impact Assessment Notification, 2006
  5. Batteries (Management and Handling) Amendment Rules, 2010
  6. Bio-Medical Waste Management Rules, 2016
  7. The Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016
  8. Construction & Demolition Waste Management Rules, 2016
  9. The Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016
  10. The E-waste (Management) Rules 2016

Environmental Clearance from Karnataka State Pollution Control Board

Environmental clearance is the license required to assess the effect of the planned project of industries on the environment and nearby residents. The environmental clearance process includes screening, scoping and evaluating of upcoming projects.

The detailed process of Environmental clearance is as follows: -

  • At first, the project's location is analysed as per the guidelines specified. The proponent is asked to change the site if the location is not under the rules.
  • The project is then examined as to whether the proposed activity/clearance comes under the scope of environmental clearance; if yes, then the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study is conducted.
  • Once the EIA report is prepared, the role of state authorities comes into the picture where Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) and the State Forest Department inspect the pollution that may be caused by the industry and scrutinise it as per the given guidelines. Once it is reviewed thoroughly by KSPCB, the Consent to Establish is issued, which is valid for 15 years.
