      "Any generator of bio-medical waste which includes a hospital, nursing home, clinic, dispensary, veterinary institution, animal house, pathological laboratory, blood bank is responsible for:
      i) treatment and disposal of the bio-medical waste
      ii) segregation, packaging, transportation and storage of the bio-medical waste
      by itself or ensure the treatment of waste at a common waste treatment facility."
       
      Mah Pollution Control Board is the responsible agency to ensure this.
       
      but it's not working smoothly,
      e.g. the transporter was caught by a BMC vigilance team while disposing used syringes, etc.
      e.g. BMC is not responsible for non-BMC generators of bio-medical waste, and so these others are not in anyone's scanner in an effective way
       
      Even if common bio-medical waste collection and treatment facilities are set-up at, say, 4 locations, at around Rs. 25 crores each, it may not solve the problem unless systems are evolved properly.
       
      Any suggestions how NGOs / Citizen Groups should be involved?
       
      Any idea if lists of the generators mentioned above exist with MPCB, MCGM, or their respective associations?
       
      regards
