One of the major problems faced by the present day industrialized societies is  Pollution. In  simple
terms, pollution can be defined as the presence of pollutants in the atmosphere. Pollution  can  be
of any nature- air, water, radiation, sound, light etc and  one cannot underestimate its  ill effects.
The growing number of diseases and general degradation of environment prompted the Government
to take some concrete steps in this direction to  mitigate  the ill  effects. Thus the Government of
India has enacted three important legislations, which are as follows:

1.   The Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974.
2.   The Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1981.
3.   The Environment Protection Act, 1986.

For enforcing these  above  Acts and  the  rules, regulations  and  Notifications made there under,
Pollution Control Committee (PCC) has been constituted jointly for the UnionTerritories of Daman &
Diu  and Dadra & Nagar Haveli.

The total Geographical area of UT's of Daman, Diu and Dadra & Nagar Haveli is only 72, 40 and 600
sq  kms.  respectively.  Non-Availability  of  large  tracts  of  land  suitable  for establishing  heavy
industries, scattered human habitations all over the territories and inadequacy of crisis management
infrastructure like ambulance and fire service have left  little choice  to the  Administration and PCC
but  to  restrict  setting  up of  pollution  industries,  listed  under  the  Notification as red/ banned
list of industries.

For promoting  establishment of other permitted industries, to facilitate obtaining pollution consents
and  clearances, relevant  information has  to be  disseminated. An  endeavor is being  made in this
direction by creating a web site which contains information  regarding environment  requirements in
these minuscule but beautiful territories.

In this Web site, one can find all  necessary information  to  start the  permitted  industries and to
obtain timely renewals. All forms and data are  available in  downloadable  PDF Format. Full text of
acts, rules, notifications etc are not furnished in this site for which concerned people may contact
the  ministry  of Environment  and Forest , Government  of  India's  web site.  WWW.ENVFOR.NIC.

The PCC has ambitious plans to prepare a industrial database on  industries  and release  the same
on internet with  the  hope that it will  create new  opportunities  for  the  industrialists to  market
their products  globally  making  use of  the  E-commerce  and  information  technology.  The legal
hurdles posed in the way of dissemination of data ion the electronics media are being examined.

Suggestions, Opinions and Complaints, if  any may  be mailed to  the Member  Secretary, Pollution
Control Committee, Daman And Diu and Dadra & Nagar Haveli.
