Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Subash Datta Vs State of West Bengal & Others dated 03/03/2021. Grievance in the application was against air pollution due to crop burning during winter season in Districts Burdwan, Birdhum, Hooghly, Howrah, Murshidabad and New Town Action Area II of Calcutta in West Bengal, resulting in air pollution in Calcutta.

This study focuses on the ex-situ crop residue management and examines the economics of crop residue supply chain in Punjab. It compares the delivered cost of various types of biomass products such as bales, briquettes, and pellets to end-users.

Crop stubble burning is a major source of pollution in Northwest India. It will require significant and continuous investment to end the practice. On the other hand, despite the growth in ‘renewables’, India’s reliance on coal to meet its base power load demand will continue in the foreseeable future.

Every winter, the large-scale burning of crop residues from paddy crop in October-November in the neighbouring states of Punjab, Haryana and western Uttar Pradesh contributes significantly to the region’s air pollution challenge.
