The Daily Star – Shipbreaking policy by next month

18 September 2011 – The government will finalise a policy for building, breaking, and recycling of ships by the next month (October), Industries Minister Dilip Barua said yesterday.

“It will be a comprehensive policy with specific guidelines so that the industry does not pollute environment and water”, he said.

The minister also urged businesspeople not to bring toxic ship. He, however, did not say anything about what punitive measure will be taken if businesses bring toxic ship.
