Status of Compliance Monitoring & Enforcement in India

March 18, 2020

To keep a check on the consequences of economic development in India, where the latter is propelled by rapid industrial growth and urbanization agenda of the governments since the turn of the 21st Century, sound environmental governance is needed. Fortunately, India has a very well developed governance structure to tackle the severe environmental problems, and not just at the local or regional level but also the national level. Issues like worsening air quality in most of the major Indian cities including the non-attainment cities where the ambient levels of air pollutants exceed the standards of both the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), especially for particulate matter; all major rivers, tributaries, streams, lakes and other major water bodies are polluted due to high levels of pollution from effluents generated primarily from industrial processes and municipal activities; excessive utilization of natural resources leading to deforestation, desertification, and large scale displacement; and emissions from industrial, commercial and residential activities are some of the major concerns that needs addressing by the governing machinery.
