Amara Raja Batteries Receives Closure Orders from APPCB For Plants In Chittoor

Amara Raja Batteries has received closure orders dated 30 April, 2021 from the Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board (APPCB) for the company’s plants situated at Karkambadi and Nunegundlapalli in Chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh.

The battery manufacturer will effectively abide by the orders given by APPCB and will implement a backup plan to avoid interruption in the supply of batteries to its customers across various essential service segments like defence, hospitals, and telecom. The company is also looking into alternative steps to protect the interests of its customers, suppliers, partners, and employees.

A company spokesperson said, “We shall continue to make our efforts to engage with APPCB authorities in the interest of avoiding a dislocation in supplies to some of our largest clients in sensitive sectors. At a time of a national emergency in the form of the Covid pandemic, such a dislocation could be calamitous. All our manufacturing plants have undergone various annual/bi-annual environmental audits and certifications over many years and have received several awards for safety and environmental sustainability and have adhered to the highest norms of environment, health, safety. Our choices have always been guided by a commitment to society that is socially and environmentally responsible.” (MT)
