File for NOC from Pollution Control Board With GRC India

To operate an industry, manufacturers are required to secure NOC from the requisite pollution control board. The central Environmental Protection board and pollution control authorities have categorised the diverse industries based on the amount of pollution emitted. This categorisation of industries is applicable under the Water (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 and Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1981. 


Categories of Industries under Pollution Control Board

  • Orange Category

  • Red Category

  • Green Category

  • White Category


Industries that fall in the red, orange or green category are required to secure their CTO/CTE from the pollution control authorities. It is mandatory for all the industries under these categories to get NOC from the Pollution Control Board. 


Industries under the white category do not require CTO/CTE from the pollution control board.
