Judgement of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Conservation Action Trust & Others Vs Ministry of Coal & Others dated 24/07/2017 regarding shutting down of mining operations in mines where coal fires are currently burning with immediate effect. The Applicant has also appealed that the coal industry (Coal India Limited, Bharat Coking Coal Limited, Western Coal Fields Limited and Others) obtain all requisite environmental clearance.

NGT disposes off the Application on the ground that the Supreme Court has issued several directions from time to time and is still monitoring the issues, thus it is desirable to await further orders of the Supreme Court.
