NGT in its Judgement said that for many years till 2010 or 2013, the samples were collected privately by the industries and the reports were obtained by the industries which were provided to the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) and were accepted as if, they are reports of the MPCB. Needless to say "the work of MPCB was practically high-jacked by the industries situated in Waluj for many years".
