Bengaluru: Aerial spraying of disinfectants temporarily suspended


PTI, Jun 1, 2021, 9:23 AM IST

Bengaluru: The state government’s plan to spray organic disinfectant over the Shivaji Nagar, City Market and Majestic area has been now put on hold after environmental and health concerns were raised by the city’s civic body.

On Saturday, the government had announced that an American Champion Scout aircraft carrying around 100 litres of organic anti-microbial solution would be flown over the city. The aircraft would spray the solution over congested areas such as Shivajinagar, City Market, and Majestic.

The pilot project was to be carried out from 8 am to 10 am for three days starting from Monday, May 31. While Aerialworks Aero LLP was in charge of spraying the disinfectant, two other private companies – PerSapein and Sugaradhana – had the responsibility of manufacturing the solution.

But the plan has been temporarily suspended after BBMP commissioner said a study needs to be carried out first on the health and environmental impact of the project before launching it.

It may be recalled that last year, BBMP had sprayed chemical disinfectants using drones.
