Tejinder Kumar Jolly v. State of Uttarakhand

Environmental Law – Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 National Green Tribunal (NGT) Pre-existing Industrial Units Stone Crushers The main stand of the respondents before the NGT is that they are old units operating since 1985 and they should not be forced to relocate because of the later developments Public interest would warrant action against polluting units. This is equally applicable to those industrial units which have been functioning since long. Adherence to the environmental and pollution norms cannot be compromised for factual misunderstandings or due to cryptic determination. Orders which have direct repercussions on the right to clean environment must surely be the outcome of careful scrutiny and substantive deliberation, as per the applicable facts The NGT was required to address the grievance on the adverse health impacts on local populace by the stone crushers..
