The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has allowed Sterlite Industries (India)'s controversial Tuticorin copper smelter to remain open and resume normal operations after the committee referred by the environmental body suggested that there was no pollution being created by the Vedanta group company, reports Anshu Sharma.

On June 10, the Supreme Court had ordered that copper smelter can operate only until the second week of July.

This comes as a big relief for non-ferrous metal producer as its biggest copper smelting plant had been shut for almost two months after the local pollution board in Tamil Nadu, ordered the smelter to shut at the end of March on complaints of emissions.

On June 17, the smelter had again resumed operations after National Green Tribunal's expert panel gave a green signal.
