The Madras High Court reverses TN pollution board’s decision against Isha Foundation

Madras High Court

The Madras High Court has reversed the Tamil Nadu pollution board’s decision to take action against the Isha Foundation for alleged environmental violations. The court said that the foundation had taken all the necessary steps to prevent environmental pollution and that there was no need for further action.

The court quashed a prosecution initiated by the pollution control board against the yoga centre for constructing buildings in the Velliangiri hills without obtaining prior environmental clearance.

Environmental authorities in Coimbatore had issued a show cause notice to the Isha Foundation for non-compliance with the Education Impact Assessment (EIA) notification. The Madras High Court provided Isha a brief respite by restraining environmental authorities from taking any punitive action.
