The scenario that is emerging due to increasing rural and urban population, rapid industrialization and technological interferences has threatened the fine balance which exists between man and environment. The growth of cities of excessive size creates many social and economic problems. The environment and development, of late, have emerged as the major themes of debate today. While development is necessary to tackle the demands of the increasing population, it is equally important to keep the environment as far as possible undisturbed in order to strike a balance between environment and development.
