The firm's bottling arm, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB), said the company is in contact with the Uttar Pradesh State Pollution Control Board regarding the facility in Dasna. HCCB said all of its plants operate in "full compliance with all regulatory norms", adding that the site concerned is no exception.

"Being a responsible corporate citizen, HCCB complies with the law both in letter and spirit," the firm said in a statement.

The bottler confirmed, however, that the facility had stopped production. "We received a communication from Uttar Pradesh State Pollution Control Board and submitted a detailed response. Since UPPCB is reviewing the response, to show our commitment to compliance with regulatory norms, we decided to temporarily suspend manufacturing at Dasna plant".

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola India suspended operations at three of its plants in the country, citing low demand and the absence of economic viability. The facilities are situated in the states of Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh and Meghalaya.
