New Delhi, April 27
The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed Vedanta to operate its oxygen production unit on standalone basis at its copper plant at Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu in view of a national need for oxygen to save Covid-19 patients.
The plant had been closed for three years due to environmental reasons. The order came from a Bench led by Justice DY Chandrachud that said the plant would be operated for production of medical grade oxygen only.
The order will continue till July 31 and further decision would be taken after assessing the ground situation with respect to Covid, it said. — TNS
