The National Green Tribunal, established in 2010, has in the short term since its establishment strongly infuenced environmental litigation in India. Unlike its predecessor the National Environment Appellate Authority, its fve benches have wide ranging powers to adjudicate upon any dispute that involves questions of importance to the environment. Tis power coupled with technical expertise has exponentially strengthened the environmental protection regime in the country. In a number of decisions, the Tribunal has proved its efciency in resolving environmental disputes. In this article, the authors survey some of the landmark decisions given by the various National Green Tribunal benches in an efort to discern the trends in environmental jurisprudence in India.
