Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Charudatt Koli Vs M/s. Sea Lord Containers Ltd. dated 05/02/2019 regarding air pollution in the outskirts of Mumbai affecting inhabitants of the area, particularly at villages Ambapada and Mahul since 2007 on account of business of logistic services storing oil, gas and chemical items as well as oil companies doing similar activities.

Tribunal directs an integrated action plan to be submitted to the CPCB by the polluting industries and a Performance Guarantee to comply with such action plan. The CPCB would determine the amount to be paid for the damage to the air quality caused so far on account of failure to take adequate measures, inspite of orders passed by the Tribunal more than three years back.
