The process of collecting documents to file PIL is under process and it will be filed soon in the court.
6. Pollution due stone crusher units in Hindol Block:

Due to stone crusher units functioning by the side of the road leading from Gudiakateni Chowk to Hindol town, heavy pollution is occurring in the nearby villages creating health hazards to human and animals. As advised by the collector during discussion on 02.05.2011, we have approached the State Pollution Control Board, Bhubaneswar for its effective solution. The collector Dhenkanal is also kind enough and agreed not to give further permission to stone crusher unit likely to be setup near the said road side, as well as habitat villages.

The association is constantly perusing with OPTCL authoiries for construction of one 132/33KV Grid sub-station at Khajuriakata in Hindol Block. As a result the tendering process has already been completed and the work is likely tobe started soon. This will bring reliability of power supply in the sub-division area.  This was a long standing public demand of the area.
