Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB) members demolished two textile dyeing factories Saturday evening for discharging untreated effluent into the drains, according to the Economic Times.

The two facilities, located in the suburban area of Poosari Thottam, India, were also operating without licenses. Cases were filed against the factory owners of each of the locations.

TNPCB has recently been cracking down on factories operating without licenses. The Board reportedly closed and demolished 363 textile dyeing, printing and bleaching units functioning without licenses in the Erode district over the last three years, a senior official of the TNPCB said.

The control board has also taken strict action against textile dyeing factories that are discharging effluent into water sources, he added.
