CPCC Launches Web-Based Inspection Application for Enhanced Environmental Compliance

Chandigarh, August 25, 2023:

 

The Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee (CPCC), responsible for upholding environmental regulations in the Union Territory of Chandigarh, has taken a significant technological leap towards enforcing environmental Acts and Rules. Today, the CPCC Chairman, Sh. Nitin Kumar Yadav, inaugurated a cutting-edge web-based application module aimed at enhancing the efficiency and transparency of random and surprise inspections of industrial units by the committee’s officers.

The application’s key objective is to streamline the inspection process, ensuring a more transparent and accountable enforcement of Environmental Acts and Rules. Among its noteworthy features is the automatic allocation of inspections to CPCC officers, eliminating any potential for manipulation in the inspection process. Real-time GPS tagging of industries and the equitable distribution of workload among CPCC officers are integral aspects of the system. This technological advancement also promises timely case disposal, significantly improving the overall effectiveness of the CPCC’s operations.

In an interconnected world, the need for transparent governance is paramount, and the new application aligns seamlessly with this principle. By leveraging technology, CPCC aims to heighten accountability, boost efficiency, and enhance transparency in its efforts to safeguard the environment.

Sh. Nitin Kumar Yadav presided over a comprehensive review meeting, bringing together the Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee, Department of Forest and Wildlife, and Department of Environment. During the session, officials from the respective departments provided presentations covering their activities, achievements, challenges, and future strategies.

One notable development shared during the meeting was the Department of Environment’s creation of the ‘Climate Change Dashboard.’ This innovative tool is designed to identify crucial environmental indicators such as Vegetation Index, Urban Heat Island, and Land Classification in the city based on climate parameters. Secretary Yadav suggested increasing public awareness about this tool to encourage wider participation in environmental monitoring.

The review meeting witnessed the presence of Sh. T.C. Nautiyal, Chief Conservator of Forests and Member Secretary of CPCC, Sh. Arulrajan P, Conservator of Forests, as well as officials from the Municipal Corporation, Engineering Department, Forest and Environment department. The collaboration and commitment demonstrated during this meeting underscore Chandigarh’s dedication to robust environmental management and sustainable development.
