The Gujarat High Court has issued notices to the Gujarat State Fertiliser Corporation, Vadodara, Gujarat Pollution Control Board and the State government regarding air pollution. The Court's directive has come in the wake of a petition filed by Badodara Gramya Pradushan Nivaran Samiti protesting the rise in air pollution around the Fertiliser Corporation.
