There are many environmental issues in India. Air pollution, water pollution, garbage and pollution of the natural environment are challenges for India. The situation was worse between 1947 through 1995. According to data collection and environment assessment studies of World Bank experts, between 1995 through 2010, India has made one of the fastest progresses in the world in addressing its environmental issues and improving its environmental quality. Still India has a long way to go to reach environmental quality similar to that enjoyed in developed economies. Pollution remains a major challenge and opportunity for India.
Environmental issues are one of the primary causes of diseases, health issues an 
long-term livelihood impact for India. Major environmental issues are forest and agricultural degradation of land, resource depletion (water, mineral, forest, sand and rocks), environmental degradation, public health, loss of biodiversity, loss of resilience in ecosystems and livelihood security for the poor.
The major sources of pollution in India include the rampant burning of fuel wood and biomass such as dried waste from livestock as the primary source of energy, lack of organised garbage and waste removal services, lack of sewage treatment operation, lack of flood control and monsoon water drainage system, diversion of consumer waste into rivers, cremation practices near major rivers, government mandated protection of highly polluting old public transport, and continued operation by Indian government of government-owned, high emission plants built between 1950 and 1980.
