Some matters Courts can look into, some it cant: SC on plea to ban stubble burning

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has declined to grant urgent hearing on a plea seeking ban on stubble burning as a measure to curb air pollution in the state.

The bench headed by Chief Justice D. Y Chandrachud queried whether the ban will actually help to curb the pollution or not. He added that in some matters, courts can look into and for some it cannot, since they are not judicially amenable.

The Bench pointed out that genuine solution should be found on the issue but ban is not the way and the top Court declined to list the matter on priority.

Last week, the Supreme Court agreed to examine a plea seeking urgent steps to curb air pollution in the state. It claimed that due to worsening air pollution it has become difficult to survive in the National Capital Territory.

Advocate Shashank Shekhar Jha sought an urgent hearing in the matter and sought a direction to state governments to take necessary measures in order to reduce the pollution, which includes installation of smog-towers, plantation drive, and affordable public transport, among others.

Delhi faces the worst amounts of air pollution in the first week of November due to a combination of factors, including stubble burning. On Wednesday, the average air quality index (AQI) was 260, an improvement from 372 a day earlier.
