In the aftermath of a meat racket — in which animal carcasses from municipal dumping grounds were being procured and sold to various wholesalers and retailers in city — Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) will set up an animal incinerator at Pramod Nagar near the dumping ground off Belghoria Expressway. This incinerator will be the second after the one at the Dhapa dumping ground off EM Bypass. At present, pets and dead animals are being incinerated at a specific site in Dhapa. In New Town, Hidco has developed a animal incinerator that will start functioning soon but this facility will only be for pet cremation. KMDA officials along with South Dum Dum Municipality officials held a joint inspection of the area at Pramod Nagar a few days ago. The animal incinerator would be set up on a 12-cottah plot near the dumping ground off Belghoria Expressway. The project is estimated to cost about Rs 3 crore. The incinerator would have an electric furnace and a platform to bring in dead animals. The dumpyard off Belghoria Expressway — that is spread over 20 acres — caters to four civic bodies of Dum Dum, North and South Dum Dum and Baranagar Municipality. It receives more than 500 tonne solid waste daily becoming a cause of concern in terms of pollution.
