Garbage treatment project at Patnitop

Why even after procuring the Magnetic Disintegrator machine at a whopping cost of Rs.40 lakh, the authorities concerned at Patnitop have failed to put it on operational mode. The threat to very sensitive and delicate environment and ecology of famous hill station Patnitop is thus going to be unresolved and allowed to remain in the present status for a few more months.
The area is thronged by hundreds of tourists every day and used plastic, garbage, waste material, used bottles and pouches, litter etc could be seen strewn all over posing danger to the tenuous environment for which the Patnitop Development Authority procured this modern machine two years back which has an important component of the Garbage Treatment Project. Let us hope that the machine would be put to use at an early date all in the interests of the hilly station kept neat and clean.
