An application has been filed by S. K. Goyal for compliance of Tribunal order dated 04.10.2017, whereby  the Tribunal, on consideration of pollution caused by operation of locomotive engines by the Railways, directed that the guidelines containing locomotive standards, be put up on the website of CPCB and expeditious efforts be made by all the stakeholders including MoEF&CC, CPCB and the concerned Ministry to approve the final parameters for locomotive engines after completing the study and then to notify the same.

The Tribunal on 11.08.2020 while hearing the application observed that “… even though more than three years have passed, the standards have still not been finalized without any valid justification. Such unexplained delay and apathy can hardly be conducive to the Rule of Law. It also adversely affects the environment and the public health.”
