  • West Bengal tops the list of states buying ‘dirty’ coal power.
  • Most stations supplying electricity to West Bengal have done very little to comply with the SO2 norms, notified by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change (MoEF&CC).
  • To conduct the assessment, CSE researchers have only considered the progress made by power stations to meet the SO2 norms as a measuring scale to identify the dirtiest power source since compliance with these norms has remained a  challenge.
