Railway stations to seek CPCB permissions

The National Green Tribunal has directed all stations across the Indian Railways to obtain necessary environmental permissions. Directing the national transporter to consider the suggestions of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) on implementing the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974, as well as the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981, the NGT asked Indian Railways to implement action plans for making stations across the country clean. A team consisting of CPCB and concerned state pollution control board will review the performance of major stations in terms of implementation of action plans along with compliance.

The bench was told by the CPCB that five out of 36 stations: Vadodara, Jaipur, Bilaspur, Mysuru, and Vishakhapatnam stations are in the ‘Good’ category. Earlier, Indian Railways was directed by the tribunal to identify as well as develop at least 36 railway stations as ‘eco-smart’ stations.
