Which are Red, Orange and Green Industries in Jammu and Kashmir?

Which are Red, Orange and Green Industries in Jammu and Kashmir?

In order to categorise the industries on severity of pollution J & k State Pollution Control Board has categorized industries in three broad categories viz. Red, Orange and Green in decreasing order of severity of pollution. In this classification, “Red” represents highly polluting industries, ‘Orange’ represents moderately polluting industries and ‘Green’ represents marginally polluting units. This classification helps the common people to understand about pollution as well as prioritization of plans and programmes of pollution control and surveillance according pollution potential of a particular category of industry. The State Board has adopted the following classification in each category of industries/projects.
