New Delhi, June 11: Trouble seems to be coming for KFC and Cafe Coffee Day (CCD), as the green watchdog have asked them to shut shop as they have been found flouting environmental laws.

As per an IndiaToday report, "In the past one year, about 100 top-of-the-line eateries, restaurants and commercial establishments - including KFC and Cafe Coffee Day (CCD) - have been found flouting environmental laws.

Trouble coming for KFC, CCD!
But despite clear instructions from the green watchdog to down their shutters, the authorities didn't take action against them in 90 per cent cases."

The Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) had earlier informed all such 'polluting units' to down their shutters but as and when they are asked to do so, these units tell Delhi Jal Board (DJB), to disconnect supplies and the area SDMs to seal the premises.

But as per the daily's report, none of the above acted in majority of cases in the past one year.

"Compliance reports have not been received regarding disconnection of power and water supplies and closure of the units in most of the 99 cases reported between 1.4.2014 and 30.4.2015," DPCC chairman Sanjiv Kumar has said in his letter to the principal secretary (power), DJB CEO and the divisional commissioner.

As per the report, he has further written in his letter to "direct the officers to take immediate, necessary action and send a compliance report within 10 days to be submitted to the chief secretary".
