Flouting of environmental laws has become a common practice making environmental protection a difficult task. Industries in rural areas are found to be the worst offenders.

Abstract: In recent times, the Indian judiciary is playing a key role in the development of environmental norms. While various judgements passed by the courts and the National Green Tribunal have sought to prohibit environmentally harmful activities, in the absence of rigorous implementation, little progress has been made so far.
