The bounty of nature has provided us with pure/fresh water and air abundance, but due to population explosion, scientific development, industrialization and uncontrolled urbanization, the natural resources are dwindling regularly. It is our moral duty to heed to the mirth and comfortable life of the forthcoming generation with enhancement of the healthy environmental standards. To fulfil those objectives and to address the environmental problems, the Government of Rajasthan has established Department of Environment since Sept, 1983.
