Amara Raja Resumes Production after interim relief by Andhra High Court
Biznextindia : Amara Raja Batteries Limited has resumed operations at its plants at Nunegundlapalli and Karkambadi at Chittoor District from 8th May, 2021 after Andhra Pradesh High Court granted an interim suspension of the orders passed by Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board (APPCB).
APPCB on April 30 had ordered closure of the plants for violating the Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 and Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1981. Subsequently, the company had gone to the Andhra Pradesh High Court challenging the Pollution Board’s order.
The Hon’ble High court on 6th April granted an interim suspension on APPCB order on the condition that ARBL should carry out operations under the supervision of the pollution control body and comply with its norms by June 17. The next hearing of the case has been scheduled on June 28.
“The Company is confident of meeting all its supply commitments and assures all its stakeholders that the temporary disruption caused during the last few days will not have any material impact on its operations or order book”.
“We have taken proactive measures to ensure that all our obligations to supply products and services to our customers are met in a timely manner without causing any inconvenience, whatsoever. We are assessing the impact of the short term disruption, and gearing up to sufficiently cater to the demands of all our customers and business partners. We also take this opportunity to thank all our employees, customers, partners, vendors and all other stakeholders who reposed faith in us and we will continue to strive to meet all their expectations,” a Company spokesperson said
