MbPT to temporarily handle coal

Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) will temporarily handle coal at its Haji Bunder facility following a request by the state environment ministry. MbPT had earlier said it would not handle coal after October 31, when the consent to operate issued by the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) lapses. It pointed to how the pollution regulator failed to enforce environmental norms before issuing consent to operate orders to the port trust for coal handling. It also pointed out how the port trust failed to implement the conditions laid down in the order. Over 1 lakh metric tonne of coal have been lying on port land along the city┬┤s eastern seafront.
