Order of the National Green Tribunal (Eastern Zone Bench, Kolkata) in the matter of Ramchandra Mardi & Ors. Vs. West Bengal State Pollution Control Board & Ors. dated 22/04/2016 regarding illegal stone quarries operating in Jharkhand and West Bengal.
The order expressed dismay at the approach of Ministry of Environment, Forests and CC and said that "more often than not, we have noticed that they do not respond to notices issued by us giving us a distinct impression that it is a deliberate attempt on the part of the Ministry to scuttle the proceedings and cause obstruction in the course of justice."
