ABOUT THE NATIONAL SEMINAR
The history of legislative operation in India started with the Indian Penal Code, 1860. Section 268 defined what is Public Nuisance. Abetment of Public Nuisance is also a subject of Sections 133 to 144 of CrPC, which are only prohibitive provisions. Sections 269 to 278 of IPC are Penal provisions dealing with different aspects of public safety, tranquillity.
Legislative efforts for control of Pollution continued in Independent India. Presently there is a plethora and public order legislation in India aimed at protecting the environment from pollution and maintaining the ecological balance. The Environment Protection Act, 1986 is one major Act for environmental protection. The Government of India from time to time launched various programmes and made comprehensive use of media to educate people and raise their consciousness for the protection of the environment.
In February 1971, the University Grants Commission (India), in collaboration with other organizations, hold a symposium on the development of Environmental Studies in the Indian Universities. The consensus that emerged at the symposium was that ecology and environmental issues should form part of the courses of study at all levels.
The first and foremost course for environmental protection is educating the people on the subject and creating awareness. However, due to negligence and preferential treatment to the economic gains of the society, industry causes great damage to the environment in the process of meeting the desired needs. The situation can only be controlled by enacting and enforcing the legal provisions. The present National Seminar is aimed to discuss at length about the legitimacy of preventive, protective and precautionary steps towards environment conservation.
