This article looks at different legal frameworks and challenges regulating atmospheric emissions from chemical plants in India. As air pollution is a major problem in India, chemical plants, which emit a large number of pollutants in the air, must have strong legal regulation and control. In this context, the article discusses the evolution of environmental law and legal theories that underpin environmental regulation, and examines the legislations and regulations applicable to the industrial emissions. It further considers the role CPCB, SPCB, and EIA play in enforcing air quality standards, and some of the challenges that companies face in meeting their obligations. The discussion also looks at limitations of law, and access to justice, issues of technology and economics, and the need for a socio-economic balance in protecting the environment without halt to growth and development. It is concluded that the legal and policy framework needs continuous reform and movement to follow challenges of evolving pollution and the path of sustainable development.
