Order of the National Green Tribunal in the matter of Tribunal on its own Motion Vs. Union of India. The proceedings were initiated on an allegation of severe pollution of river Churni passing through Nadia district in the State of West Bengal. The untreated effluents from factories were being released into river Mathabhanga which was joining river Churni. The discharge was also taking place in Bangladesh from where the river is coming.

Inorganic soil arsenic (As) in three soils was fractionated adopting phosphorus fractionation schemes. Among these fractions, iron-bound arsenic (Fe-As) was found highest, followed by aluminium-bound arsenic (Al-As). The freely exchangeable arsenic was relatively small compared to the arsenic held by internal surfaces of soil aggregates. The arsenic fractions exhibited positive correlation with phosphorus content presumably due to the fact that high P in soil releases more arsenic from soil adsorption sites owing to the competition for the same adsorption sites.

National Green Tribunal on Sep 20, 2016 directed the Ministry of External Affairs to continue discussions with the Govt. of Bangladesh for setting up of an Effluent Treatment Plant for the industries contributing to the pollution of river Mathabanga which subsequently flow into river Churni in West Bengal.
