The Central Authority meeting of National Legal Services Authority (NALSA) was held on 7/7/2012, chaired by Hon’ble Mr. Justice Altamas Kabir (the then Executive Chairman, NALSA). It was resolved that the problem of excessive sand- mining from the rivers and the resultant drop in the water level resulting in destruction of rivers, should be taken by NALSA as a Social Justice Litigation under Section 4 (d) of the Legal Services Authorities Act, 1987. It has also been resolved in that meeting to request the law colleges and law universities to engage law students to examine and enquire into destruction of the environment and to send reports to NALSA for initiating appropriate steps:
- Kindly depute law students of your esteemed institution to examine and enquire into instance of environmental destruction including the adverse ecological impacts due to sand-mining from major rivers and send their reports periodically to this Authority for taking appropriate action.)
- While on their home stations during the impending winter break, the students are advised to examine this aspect with regard to the local environment/position. Those who are interested to work further may then submit a report on their rejoining and discuss the further course of action.
