Kochi: Kerala High Court division bench Monday directed the state policy to register criminal offence against those who dump waste on the streets. Justice CN Ramachandran Nair and Justice P S Gopinathan of the bench asked all local bodies to ensure the same.
Hearing the cases relating to waste management in Kerala, the High Court made this rule. It comes close on the heels of the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) blaming the Kerala State Pollution Control Board. The board blamed the State Government and urban local bodies for not managing the waste generated despite being the country’s most literate state.
