J & K State Pollution Control Board is a statutory authority that was established in 1987 under the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 and is vested with powers under that act, as well as the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981, and the Environment Protection Act, 1986, and various Rules made thereunder, to abate and control environmental pollution. The main gaol’s of this board are as follows:

How are Industries Categorized Under the Jammu & Kashmir Pollution Control Board (JKPCB) Certification?

The Jammu and Kashmir State Pollution Control Committee has released a list of industrial units in accordance with the notification passed by the Central Pollution Control Board and processes broken down into Red, Orange, Green, and White categories, all of which are fully consistent and similar to the serial numbers in the CPCB list, in order to make it easier to work and share information online through the India E-track Web Portal. Several types of units are categorized under the Red category, the Green category, the Orange category, and the White category in the recently modified list.

The State Pollution Control Board must grant industrial units listed under the Red, Orange, and Green categories permission to construct and operate, although those listed under the White category are exempt from these restrictions. Depending on the Pollution Index of the sectors in each zone, the OPCB categorizes industries. The Pollution Index has a scale of 0 to 100, with 100 denoting the most pollutant emissions from units. The following industries are divided into categories:

  1. Red Category: Pollution Index of 60 or more.
  2. Orange Category: Calculating from 41 to 59 on the Pollution index.
  3. Green Category: Calculating from 21 to 40 for the Pollution Index.
  4. White Category: Pollution Index up to less than 20.
