National Green Tribunal

Under the provisions of National Green Tribunal Act, 2010, National Green Tribunal (NGT) has been set up in Delhi to handle cases of environmental concerns. This tribunal is now functioning at Delhi and Chennai and hearing cases concerning environment issues. Recently, Supreme Court of India has directed all High Courts to transfer all cases on environmental laws instituted after enactment of National Green Tribunal Act to NGT. The Court has also requested the High Courts to also consider transferring all other cases instituted prior to enactment of National Green Tribunal Act, 2010 to NGT in the fitness of administration of justice.

NGT exercises its jurisdiction over cases relating to environmental protection and conservation of forests and other natural resources and for enforcement of any legal right relating to environment and giving relief and compensation for damages to persons and property and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. The cases at NGT are heard by a bench comprising of judicial members and experts on specific environmental issues. The appeal from the order of the NGT lies directly in the Supreme Court of India.
