Manufacture of new products and by-products recovered through
application of pollution control processes
1. It is the policy of the
Government that the industrial undertakings desiring to use the wastes
and effluents for manufacture of new products should be encouraged to do
2. Many of the chemicals
recovered from pollution control processes and recycling of waste products
are reserved for exclusive manufacture in the small scale. As per current
industrial policy, the non-small scale units require to obtain industrial
licence with 50% export obligation for manufacturing any of the products
reserved for the small scale sector. In this background, it was felt that
if the chemicals are recovered through installation of pollution control
processes which are in the larger interest of sustainable industrial development,
capacity of such recoverable chemicals, even if reserved for the small
scale, should be permitted without the mandatory export obligation.
3. The Government have now
decided that in order to encourage adoption of pollution control processes
by the industrial undertakings which have the potential to utilise the
waste products and effluents for manufacture of new items, they may be
allowed to do so by suitable endorsement in the existing Industrial Licences
or issued new Industrial Licences for such recoverable items which may
be reserved for the small scale sector, without necessarily stipulating
the mandatory export obligation.
4. The industrial undertakings
will submit application in Form IL, to the Secretariat for Industrial Assistance,
Ministry of Industry, Udyog Bhawan, New Delhi. Such applications will be
considered on merits and wherever Government agrees to allow industrial
undertakings to recycle their wastes and effluents, necessary endorsement
of capacity for the items allowed would be made on industrial licences,
without necessarily stipulating the conditions for export of such new items.
However, before taking a decision in the matter, the Secretariat for Industrial
Assistance will obtain the prior written comments/views of the Development
Commissioner (SSI) in each case.
5. It is hoped that adoption
of this positive policy would encourage the industrial units to install
pollution control processes and be a positive incentive to utilise the
waste products and effluents.
6. Entrepreneurs desirous
of availing this facility shall have to submit applications in the prescribed
form for Industrial Licences (Form FC/IL) to the Secretariat for Industrial
Assistance (SIA), Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion, Ministry
of Industry, Udyog Bhawan, New Delhi-110011, giving full details of the
pollution control processes proposed to be adopted and new items with capacities
which would be recovered from the same.
