Abstract

Abatement of pollution for preventing deterioration of the environment has become a central issue for quite some time. But the objectives for each problem area towards actual implementation are really diluted due to public indifference so far. The complexities are considerable, given the number of industries, organizations and influx of population. To achieve the objectives and the mix of instruments required in the form of legislations, regulations, physical incentives, voluntary agreement, educational agreement and information campaigns are well known. Though the major emphasis is on increased use of regulation, the focus on alternative technology and applications is really lukewarm. There is an increasing trend in environmental pollution.
