Restriction on RO system will remain, NGT refuses to change decision

NEW DELHI: The NGT, the National Green Tribunal, has refused to reconsider its order banning the RO system. The tribunal said it would not make any changes to its order. In fact, the NGT had asked the government to ban the RO water purification system. The ban has been asked to be imposed at places where total dissolved solids (TDS) in water are getting less than 500 mg (mg) per liter. It has also been asked to increase public awareness about ROs.

The water quality India association had filed a review petition against the tribunal's May 20 order. The bench, headed by NGT Chairman Justice Adarsh Kumar Goyal, said there is no such thing as a change in the order. The order was given after hearing the concerned parties and considering the scientific aspect of the report of the Expert Committee set up by the NGT. As per the recommendations of the Committee, the officers have been asked to issue appropriate directions.

The present petition has also not submitted any document which rejects the recommendations. So, it is rejected. According to WHO, the World Health Organization, up to 300 mg of TDS, water is good for drinking. 900 mg of water is bad and more than 1200 mg of TDS is not potable. The NGT had accused the RO system of wasting water.
