Forest department told plywood factory illegal
The Forest Department believes that the license of the plywood factory has expired. While factory owner Rajesh Kumar has said that by 2024, the license fee will be deposited in the department. It is said that the plywood factory was earlier placed in second place. That area was ten kilometers from the forest. On the objection of the Forest Department, about six years ago, former MLA Bindulal got the factory set up at Madhwanagar Semrahna. Kotesh Tyagi, regional forest officer of the Bhanbhar range, says the license was not renewed, so the factory is illegal. Rajesh told that he has deposited the money of Renewal in the department till the year 2024. The department did not give notice of the closure of the factory.
