SSRN (2007)
  • Krishna Kumari Areti

For any country the effective way of control pollution and degradation of resources is to combine traditional laws, with modern legislation. A country should adopt relevant environmental safeguards- designed to protect their limited resources. As far as India is concerned, the Ministry of Environment and Forests is the nodal agency at the Central level for planning, promoting and coordinating the environmental programmes, apart from policy formulation. A number of enforcement agencies assist the Ministry of Environment and Forests, in executing the assigned responsibilities.
