This paper is divided into four parts. The first examines the extant provisions applicable to cases of pollution resulting from Maritime activity. The second looks at the regulatory bodies established by Government to monitor and enforce compliance with the existing provisions; any areas of overlap; Lapses and deficiencies in these functions.
Part 3 is a comparative analysis of internationally applicable pollution control laws. In the fourth part, we have attempted some suggestions and recommendations for reorganization and growth. But first, we attempt a definition and a quick look at the history of Marine Pollution.
