For sound development of a human being, a human being needs unpolluted and fresh air to breath, uncontaminated and clear water to drink, nutritious and healthy food to eat and hygienic and proper condition to live in. Right from mother’s womb these elements are sine qua non for proper development of a human being. In the absence of these elements generally a human being cannot survive properly. Man in order to satisfy his needs, uses the resources of environment but he rarely pays due attention for its protection and improvement. Man is doing this either because of his indifference towards it or because of his ignorance regarding it or because of his lack of ability to improve it or because of his lack of good mentality to protect it. In the present days, environment is being affected adversely day by day in the name of development and progress through industrial and agricultural revolutions. In India, the environmental problems are increasing rapidly. Rapid industrialisation, deforestation, soil erosion, land degradation and urbanization are all worsening the problems of environmental pollution. Today, all over the world, the conservation, protection and improvement of human environment are found as major issues. The problem of environmental pollution in the present scenario has acquired international dimension and our country is no exception to it. In the present days environmental pollution is considered as one of the most important problems of our planet which is suffered by human beings and which is also suffered by other life forms of our globe. So, we have to take proper steps for the protection of our environment throughout the world. We cannot live without the resources of environment so we have to give proper emphasis on the importance of the protection of environment. In India our Government and our Judiciary both have taken so many steps for the protection of our environment. In our country in the present scenario so many laws are made by our Government for the protection of environment and ecology.
