MAY 6, 2013
In justifying its decision to revoke the environmental clearance for a huge 1,050-megawatt coal plant the Indian National Green Tribunal (NGT) described its original approval as 'smacking of non-application of mind.' In fact, if the world moves forward with the massive coal pipeline it has planned, future generations will have much stronger words than these. Chattisgarh along with neighboring Jharkhand makes up the heart of Indian coal country.
