Aavin Sholinganallur - Stop the Foul Smell - Improve your Effluent

The Aavin Dairy Unit on OMR at Sholinganallur, Chennai-600119 emanates strong, foul smell in the neighbourhood that is dotted with high-rise residential flats.  The stench is unbearable sometimes and the residents have to keep their doors and windows shut.  Many children and older people feel sick after inhaling this smell that may contain hydrogen sulphide.  We suspect that AAVIN does not have a proper Effluent Treatment System and is letting out the un-treated waste water on the back side of the unit which is a waste land.  This probably is the reason for the bad smell.  Many complaints by the neighbouring residents has been made to AAVIN regarding this problem but to no avail.  We feel that either AAVIN is in-efficient in their operations to contain this smell or having a lackadaisical attitude towards this problem.  We want AAVIN to attend this problem immediately or close the unit if they cannot.
