Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Amit Upadhaya Vs State Level Environmental Impact Assessment Authority & Others dated 31/01/2019. The issue for consideration is whether Environmental Clearance (EC) granted for Category I and II mines only on the basis of the report of the Regional Environment Impact Assessment Authority (REIAA) without individual EIA is valid in law.

The Tribunal directs MoEF&CC and the Central Pollution Control Board to examine the validity of the EIAs and submit a report.
