DIMAPUR — All lead acid battery dealers, refurbishers and recyclers dealing or operating in the state of Nagaland, have been asked to register with the Nagaland Pollution Control Board (NPCB) or face closure of their establishments.

In a notice issued on Monday, the NPCB, citing section 5 of the Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 regarding compliance of Battery Waste Management Rules, 2022, directed such establishments to apply for registration with the board within 15 days from Febuary 26. It said that all informal/illegal waste battery recycling/refurbishment operators who do not have consent to operate must immediately be closed down.

Failure to comply with these directions will attract legal actions, it cautioned, while notifying that any information on operating informal/illegal waste battery recycling/refurbishment in the state can be reported to the NPCB office.
