About Sikkim Pollutin Control :

     Sikkim State Pollution Control Board (SPCB) has a regular Ambient Air and Water Quality Monitoring Programme to assess the status of pollution in the natural environment. These monitoring programme are funded by the Central Pollution Control Board, Ministry of Environment & Forests, Government of India.
Air Pollution To prevent, control and abate air pollution in the country, the Government of India enacted Central legislation called the Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 (referred to as the Air Act, 1981). Every polluting industry must obtain a consent from the State Pollution Control Board for the discharge of air pollut­ants in any form through chimney or otherwise. The State Board may lay down suitable conditions while giving consent to discharge air pollutants in the light of emission standards developed by the Central Board, subsequently notified through the rules framed under the Environment (pro­tection) Act, 1986 Rules.
Ambient Air Quality Monitoring The air quality surveillance and monitoring is under taken to detect any deterioration in air quality arising from industrial, vehicular, residential and natural sources of pollution, as there are large seasonal variation in the concentration of various air pollutants. Air quality monitoring is the measurement of various pollutants to study the pattern and movement of air masses and deterioration of air quality. Monitoring programme helps in estimating the dynamic concentration levels of various pollutants from time to time, based on dispersal mode of original concentration at sources and at receptor end.
