The Orissa High Court on Monday permitted Paradeep Phosphate Ltd (PPL) resume operation of its diammonia phosphate (DAP) fertiliser plant at Paradip. PPL had to shut down its plant operation following a directive from the Orissa State Pollution Control Board (OSPCB).

However, following a written undertaking by the PPL management that sulphuric acid discharged from the plant will not be allowed to flow out of the plant premises, the court allowed PPL to continue with the plant operation.
