A number of
path-breaking orders to curb pollution and a strict watch on illegal mining
kept the National Green Tribunal (NGT) busy in 2014 as it also cracked the whip
on firms polluting the Ganga.
Keeping in tune with the pledge of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to clean the
"holiest of the holy" river, the NGT talked tough against the
polluting industrial units and applied the "polluter pays" principle.
