UP: BRD Medical College slapped a fine of Rs 5 crore

UP team of NGT visited BRD College and found Medical Waste Management Rules, 2016 being “seriously violated” by the college as heaps of undisposed medical waste were causing air and land pollution with foul smell emanating from them

Gorakhpur: National Green Tribunal (NGT) has slapped a fine of Rs 5 crores on BRD Medical college in Gorakhpur for failing to ensure proper disposal of medical waste, said sources in the Pollution Control Board office here.

As per a senior official in the PCB office, a team of NGT had visited the medical college in November and subsequently asked the college to pay Rs 5 crore fine.

In November, the UP team of NGT visited BRD College and found Medical Waste Management Rules, 2016 being “seriously violated” by the college as heaps of undisposed medical waste were causing air and land pollution with foul smell emanating from them, even as no arrangements were made to put separate dustbins to dispose of four types of bio-medical waste which included, infectious waste obtained from HIV, TB, and cancer patients, the official pointed out.

The regional officer of Pollution Control Board Ghanshyam Kumar, when contacted, confirmed the visit of the NGT team which also made certain recommendations to the board on the basis of its report.

“The board is analysing the report but no letter has reached us for compliance of the fine,” Kumar pointed out.

BRD principal Ganesh Kumar, however, refused to comment saying he would be in a position to respond only after consultation with the legal cell of the college.

BRD Medical College faces a huge load of patients from districts of east UP, west Bihar and even Nepal.

    Over PAPULATED , OVER CROWDED , UNDERPRIVILEGED, SOCIOECONOMICLY POOR PATIENTS VISITING REMOTE HOSPITALS SUCH FILTHY SHABBY DIRTY THINGS ARE MORE COMON . PROBABLY VISITING SUCH HOSPITALS WE ARE MORE LIKELY TO OTHER COMMUNICABLE DISEASES. I SEEN SEEN SOME OF THE DIRTIEST HOSPITALS IN ODISHA, PUNJAB AND BIHAR , DELHI FOR MAJORITY OF THEM IT LOOKS NORMAL INCLUDING THE BABUS THE BUEROCRATES, THEIR BOSSES AND DEAN DIRECTOR , MEDICAL SUPERINTENDENTS , FACULTY MEMBERS, STUDENTS AND PUBLIC. I THINK THEY DON\’T HAVE THE CONCEPT OF CLEANLINESS AND HYGENE . EVEN THEY PLACE WHERE I AM WORKING QUITE SHABBY/ DIRTY AND STINKS LIKE SHIT AT TIMES , ONLY AT THE TIME OF SOME STUPID BABUS OR THEIR BOSSES , IT GETS SOME IMPORTANCE. I HAVE PEOPLE EATING AND SITTING CLOSE BY . EXCEPT FOR THE MAALS AND AIRPORTS MOST OF INDIA IS FILTHY, SPECIALY AS WE GO TOWARDS NORTH, SIKKIM IS PROBABLY THE CLEANEST STATE IN INDIA. UNLESS AND UNTIL WE FAIL TO CONTROLE OUR EVER GROWING POPULATION , I DON\’T THINK INDIA CAN BE FREE FROM THE FILTH . THAT\’S WHY 13 OUT OF 15 CITIES OF THE INDIAN CITIES HIGHLY POLLUTED. OUR GOVERNMENT HOSPITALS ARE WORST EXAMPLES . ONLY PRIVATE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM MAY HELP US MAINTAIN CLINLINESS AND HYGIENE.
