The present sixth edition of this greatly admired publication on the subject by Prof. S.C. Shastri has been thoroughly revised and updated with all statutory and case law developments.

The new edition includes:

  1. New chapter on Nuclear Power Plants and the Environment.
  2. Updated Rules, viz. —Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules, 2015; —Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016; —Construction and Demolition Waste Management Rules, 2016; —Bio-Medical Waste Management Rules, 2016 and the new Act i.e. Compensatory Afforestation Fund Act, 2016.

The author has discussed the distinctive shift in the approach of the courts to achieve the goal of environmental justice i.e. from anthropocentric approach to eco-centric approach. The focus of the courts has shifted from humans to the protection and preservation of ecology or the present species of flora and fauna, as it is necessary for the existence of mankind. The evolving concept of “corporate social responsibility” in relation to environmental justice has also been provided due place in this work.
