A Group of Ministers (GoM) in June had approved the proposal for disposing of 350 metric tonnes of packaged chemical waste, resulting from Bhopal gas disaster of December 1984, by German agency GIZ IS for a payment of Rs 25 crore.
However, there was no agreement signed between the government and GIZ for removal of the waste.
“After three months of contract negotiations between the Indian government and GIZ for the disposal of 350 metric tonnes of soil contaminated with pesticides from Bhopal, GIZ withdrew its waste disposal offer (yesterday),” a statement from the firm said.
“The extensive negotiations could not be settled...the uncertainties grew on both sides. This uncertainty extended to the German public. Hazardous waste disposal through GIZ is no longer an option,” it said.
The firm has written to Finance Minister P Chidambaram, who heads the GoM, to inform him about its decision.
About 346 metric toxic waste is lying within the premises of the erstwhile M/s Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) at Bhopal where the worst-ever industrial disaster had taken place on the intervening night of December 2-3, 1984.
According to government data, over Rs 3,000 crore has been given as compensation in 5,295 cases of death, 4,902 cases of permanent disability, 5,27,894 cases of minor injury and 35,455 cases related to temporary disability due to the gas tragedy.
it is surprisingly to note that German firm now not accepting bhopal toxic waste, one of the reason being it is contaminated with insecticides and not as hazardous as bhopal 1984 tragedy!, IF IT IS SO, GoI immly should take certificate from German ,analyse here at approved lab, CONFIRM THE SAME again and without delay and wasting any more time in dialogues, take people and NGO in confidence, appraise them that it is not harmful to burn in India, and better send to India's best CPCB approved incinerator at BEIL, Ankleshwar,Gujarat as it was earlier decided by MP court, only thing GPCB should advice local NGO and people not to worry, not to lead to any panic situation and complete the long pending task and we can save 25 crores Rs as agreed for Germans. BEIL management can be requested to spend some profit quantum for the improvement of environmental status of Ankleshwar and this will also help to tag off ankleshwar from critically polluted zone category. reader'views are welcome.
