Ground water NOC from Central ground water authority

Groundwater NOC from Central and State Ground Water Authority

Permission to abstract groundwater is required in case the industrial unit falls under set criteria laid out by the respective authority (CGWA/ UPGWD/ HWRA)

  • CGWA (Central Ground Water Authority): This authority governs groundwater usage across India. They have different sets of criteria for different zones (over-exploited, critical, semi-critical, etc.) and different industries. For example, highly polluting industries are often subject to stricter regulations regarding groundwater abstraction.
  • UPGWD (Uttar Pradesh Ground Water Department): This department specifically oversees groundwater usage in Uttar Pradesh. Their criteria might differ from CGWA’s in terms of specific regulations and zone classifications within the state.
  • HWRA (Haryana Water Resources Authority): Similarly, the HWRA department manages groundwater usage in Haryana and has its own set of criteria for granting permission to industrial units.

Consequences of non-compliance of ground water NOC: Extracting groundwater without permission can lead to severe consequences, including:

  • Fines and penalties: Authorities can impose significant financial penalties on non-compliant units.
  • Legal action: In extreme cases, legal action can be taken against the unit and its responsible individuals.
  • Disruption of operations: The authority might even stop the unit from functioning until it complies with the regulations.

Consulting experts: Navigating the complex web of regulations and obtaining the necessary permission can be challenging. Seeking guidance from environmental experts like Northern Ridge Geotech Private Limited can significantly simplify the process. They can:

  • Assess your unit’s specific situation: Determine which authority’s criteria apply and what permissions are required based on your location, industry, and water needs.
  • Prepare and submit applications: Ensure your borewell application complies with all relevant regulations and guidelines, maximizing your chances of success.
  • Liaise with authorities: Handle communication and negotiations with the responsible authority on your behalf, saving you time and effort.

By understanding the permission requirement and following the necessary procedures, industrial units can operate responsibly and avoid legal complications while ensuring sustainable water usage.
