Directing the Ministry to consider the suggestions made by the Indian Institute of Sustainable Development (IISD), a Bench headed by NGT Chairperson Adarsh Kumar Goel said: “Counsel for the applicant submits that the stand of the MoEF shows that only an advisory was to be issued, which is not an adequate measure for strengthening forest protection and monitoring system to check illegal felling of trees for making charcoal.”
