COASTAL POLLUTION
A Legal View
Statement of Problem
Our legal system has provided a number of sources to fight against the water and other pollution.
We have had some 200 legislations dealing with the various aspects of environmental protection.
But the concern legislative activity in the backdrop of drawbacks of such dissipated, piecemeal
and earlier legislation and inadequacy of such legislations to meet the evolving challenges of
pollution, started after 1970 with the enactment of some specific legislations dealing exclusively
with the pollution problem.
But still, these legislations are not entirely succeeding in tackling the problem and we are seeing
the inefficiency of existing laws and the machinery in coping with the ever changing pollution
scenario.

Literature Survey
Since the topic is very specific, not a lot of research has been done on the subject hence very few
books are referred; the main source of knowledge for this project synopsis has been various
internet articles and small legal essays.
