They also refused the claims of keeping the future safe. This untoward accident not only had immediate effects but also has many far-reaching effects such as - after this disaster in the adjacent areas there poisonous waste lying in the factory premises is increasing the inclusion of toxic substances in groundwater. On December 3, 2014, this event completed 30 years but the dispute still continues. There is a major controversy over compensation for gas victims and the disposal of toxic waste. The number of affected settlements increased from 7 to 22 over the years.
