Background

The Atibir Industries steel plant began operating in 2009 under Atibir Industries Co.[1]

In 2013, part of the plant had to be temporarily closed due to a violation of environmental regulations. It was discovered that the plant was depositing waste into the nearby river; as a consequence, they paid a Rs 5 lakh fine.[2]

In 2018, the Atibir Industries steel plant was categorized as 'highly polluting,' along with 51 other companies, by the Jharkhand State Pollution Control Board.[3]
