Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

HC bans factories within 10 kms of Sundarbans


The High Court ordered the government Thursday not to approve any more industrial units within 10 kilometres of the Sundarbans, a UN-recognised world heritage site.

It also gave the government six months to file a list of the existing industrial units within the 10km radius of the world`s largest mangrove forest.

The HC rulings, one of some major ones of national importance, came, incidentaly, against the backdrop of reports that there had been a spree of setting up factories around the Sundarbans while contensions and raucous protests going on against a coal-fired power plant near the forest.

Secretaries of the ministries of forest and environment, industries and land and the director-general of the Department of Environment (DoE) were made respondents.

The HC bench of Justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and Justice JBM Hassan passed the orders following a writ petition filed by Sheikh Faridul Islam, president of Save the Sundarbans Foundation.

Faridul had submitted the petition seeking HC directives on the authorities concerned to relocate factories constructed within 10 kms of the world`s largest mangrove forest.

The legal move came in the wake of protests against the Rampal power project in the area under an Indo-Bangladesh joint venture.
