Environmental laws play a vital role in the control of environmental pollution and conservation. Environmental laws with its claws, paws and jaws, are formulated to preserve and protect our environment.
Awareness and understanding of the Constitutional provisions, environmental laws and related procedures ensure better implementation of these legislations. This would help a community to respond to the changing need of societies and make its citizens responsible to conserve the environment.
