Order of the National Green Tribunal (Eastern Zone Bench, Kolkata) in the matter of Subrato Mookherjee Vs Kolaghat Thermal Power Station & Others dated 14/12/2017 regarding pollution caused by Kolaghat Thermal Power Station. NGT Eastern Bench noted that the two reports submitted by the Central Pollution Control Board and the State PCB indicate different views.

In order to resolve this discrepancy NGT directs a joint committee consisting of members of both the CPCB and State PCB to be constituted which would once again ascertain the emission level and ascertain as to whether it complies with the prescribed level of emission at 100 mg/Nm3 as required under the guidelines prescribed by the MOEF as this was expected to be achieved by 7.12.2017.
