Environmental Pollution: An Overview

Mohd. Shahid (Author) Mohd. Khalid (Author)
Synopsis Industrialization is considered to be the gateway to prosperity and development of nation. However, over industrialization and indiscriminate application of science and technology to economic development has been the principal cause for continuing and accelerating impairment of the quality of environment. It is widely recognized that we are facing today dangerous levels of pollution in water, air and earth, undesirable disturbance to the ecological balance of biosphere, destruction and depiction of irreplaceable mental and social health of man in man-made environment. In other words, in India there has been industrial planning but no environmental planning. The rapid and luxuriant growth of industries consequently aggravates the problems of environmental deterioration. Our motto may probably be for industrialization with a reasonable clean environment. To achieve this, there need be a happy marriage between industrial policy and environmental policy. The water act and the air act and the central and state boards constituted under these acts, do admirable work. But proper planning and implementation with a will to improve environment is the basic need to control pollution. For that purpose standards and limits of industrial pollution have to be prescribed and enforced through legislative measures. This must be in addition to the propaganda and education against pollution. The government could undertake coordination of all these functions.
