The commission recommended that no business that falls into the red category be permitted to operate from within residential zones or habitations.To close gaps, the government asked the collectors to conduct joint inspections with representatives from the Pollution Control Board, factories, fire, electricity, and labor department.To guarantee safety in the manufacturing units, we have developed a manual.According to Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy, member of the cabinet sub-committee on industrial safety, the only thing that is required is to enforce the rules.

When reviewing safety protocols in the industry, labour minister Gummanuru Jayaram said that collectors should give top priority to public safety.Collectors should also consider alternatives if residential habitations were constructed in the vicinity of the red category industries that were granted licenses long before, he said.Minister of Finance Gudivada Amarnath instructed officials to locate dangerous industrial units that were now operating from human habitations.The state government is finding it difficult to relocate dangerous industries that were granted many decades ago.

We must address all of the topics with all actors, including the CEOs and residents.Amarnath said that we have asked the authorities to give the highest priority to public safety when allowing the factories to operate from residential areas.
