According to ANI, residents of Saboli, Nathupur, Kundli, Akbarpur, Barota, Safiabad, and Sersa have been affected severely by industrial pollution.
The industrial belt has several plastic, rubber and polyester factories which is directly affecting normalcy along with the deteriorating environment.
People of these villages are battling with air and water-borne diseases among which skin infection and cancer are most common.

People have resorted to using water filters to make sure that they do not consume impure water.
The project coordinator of Sustainability Vision Foundation Trust, Vijay Kumar Saroha says that none of the industries follows a proper waste disposal system.
