The above-mentioned statements truly intimate the importance of the Environment and presage the entire humanity that the earth is a Common Heritage and not a specific nation's blessing. Environmental law is not a brand-new idea in India. Living in harmony with nature is the tenet of Indian civilization's long-standing environmental law. A type of conservation ethics that is passed down to us through our history, culture, religion, and Vedic philosophy can be seen in our worship of nature as a deity and our recognition of the earth as mother. We are aware of the fact that, every action has an equal and opposite reaction and accordingly, 'Development' plays a negative role in the ecosystem and has always had a deteriorated effect by making the environment polluted, drastically changing of climate and invitation to innumerable diseases in the name of human development. Many countries have awakened from the call to protect the environment by enacting several legislations and criminalizing certain acts which hamper the environment. The judiciary has also played an essential role in prefixing the situation, which directly and indirectly tried to destroy the essence of the ecosystem. Nevertheless, despite numerous declarations, treaties and legislations, the deterioration is unstoppable. We must not forget that 70% of India's Economy is based on agriculture; hence the development of the ecosystem is also sine qua non. The author of the said article has tried to bring out all the prominent problems which are continuously affecting the environment; at the same time, made some critical analysis with respect to poor implementation of laws and certified certain suggestions which, if implemented, will shield the ecosystem.
