States have never implemented stringent green legislations!

Jul 11, 2012 — Even with national level legislations to protect forests and ecological hotspot areas, states have never paid much attention to implement them or protect the forests. However, international tags such as the "World Heritage" given by UNESCO will ensure that states give more attention to protected areas due to international scrutiny. While a recent Times of India report actually questions whether the tag will create political will in the state governments, I believe that such an international tag will ensure protection of the critical hotspots as then it would be India's prestige at stake!
