ANSWER

Life and personal liberty under Article 21


SOLUTION
Article 21 of the Constitution deals with the right to life and personal liberty. There are many other rights that this Article encompasses. One such is the 'Right to Pollution Free Environment'. Environment and life are interrelated. The existence of life on earth depends on the harmonious relationship between the ecosystem and the environment.  The judiciary has resolved most of the environmental cases where they considered the right to a healthy environment as fundamental for life and upheld as a fundamental right. Thus we can consider Article 21 as a mandate for the life-saving environment. This article focuses on some of the landmark cases that have a bearing on the person's right to life and right to a pollution-free environment.
