Usha Tandon has tried to compare the Land and Environment Court (LEC) estab-
lished way back in 1980 in the state of New South Wales (NSW) with India’s
National Green Tribunal (NGT) established in 2010. The LEC in its long years
of operation has evolved a high standard for environmental adjudication, whereas
NGT in its short years of existence has performed quite well but faces some
structural and institutional challenges. She thinks NGTs’ jurisdiction needs to
be widened beyond the enlisted seven legislations, internal checks and balances
(such as interim orders, reviews and appeals) for efficient and transparent delivery
of justice; other governmental stakeholders implementing its decisions need to be
entrenched, and it should be equipped with better infrastructure, office staff and
case management facilities.
