Prevention is better than cure and this is indeed true in case of
environmental pollution. A strong need is felt today, on global basis, to conserve the natural resources
like air, water and soil to sustain the quality of environment for future
generation and only a judicious use of these natural resources can prevent the
environment degradation and its ill effects on human health due to pollution.

Environmental schemes passed by Ministry through resolution:
Many areas in the environment field are of interest to common citizens and industrialists. Industry owners often have number of queries and information of their interest pertaining to establishment of industry, consents/NOC under relevant Acts, grant of Authorization, Suggestions and guidelines for prevention and Control of Pollution etc. In order to facilitate common citizens and target groups, this organization has come out with its Web Site on the net where versatile matters of common interest have been depicted and thus, I am sure, would be very useful for all concerned.
I look forward for every one's Participatory role in fulfilling the goal for Sustainable development and healthy Environment.
