Rajasthan State Pollution Control Board has directed HSIL to close operations at its Kaharani unit in Alwar, citing violation of environmental norms. The company has initiated necessary legal recourse against the order, insisting it complied with all prescribed laws. The order follows after the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on March 1 revoked its consent to operate the Kaharani unit of the company on account of few sample tests conducted by the authorities.
HSIL is one of the leading domestic players in container glass and building products segments. Under the second segment, the company manufactures and trades in sanitaryware products, faucets and wellness products. It has five manufacturing facilities in India, of which three are located in Andhra Pradesh, one in Rajasthan and one in Haryana.
