Environmental pollution has become one of the greatest quandaries in the modern world. Environmental damage caused by various human activities is leading to nothing short of a colossal catastrophe. Loss of biodiversity, ozone layer depletion, natural calamities, etc are just a few of the startling problems that will occur as a result of ecosystem destruction. Environment protection has become the need of the hour. If it is not treated seriously, it won’t be long until the earth is annihilated. International organizations have been making ardent efforts to ensure environmental protection. The effort put forward by India in achieving the goals of environmental protection and restoration is praiseworthy. Various authorities are being set up by the Indian government at the national, state, and regional levels to ensure the same. The National Green Tribunal is a specialized body set up under the National Green Tribunal Act, 2010, for handling environmental disputes and ensuring environmental justice. This research article aims to study and analyse the National Green Tribunal in India, its historical development, objectives, composition, the concept of sustainable development and environmental rule of law, and the landmark decisions passed by the National Green Tribunal.
