Step 1: Go to the official website of the National Green Tribunal and click the icon for e-filing. Step 2: Click on the Applicant corner. We should first sign up as a user before filing the complaint.

In order to answer your query, 

A plea can be filed either offline or online.

Offline mode of application,

The tribunal entertains letter petitions. To file an application seeking compensation, the NGT has a simple procedure.

For applications not involving compensation, a fee of Rs 1000 must be paid to the NGT while filing the case while for applications seeking compensation a fee which is 1% of the compensation claimed or a minimum of Rs1000 is to be paid.

Online mode of application,

National Green Tribunal launched the e-filing of the complaint in its official website. To file a complaint in this mode, the complainant does not have to go to the regional benches.

  1. Browse the official website of the National Green Tribunal <> and click the icon for e-filing.
  2.  Click on the Applicant corner.
  3.  Sign up as a user.
  4. To file a complaint, we can sign up as an individual, Advocate, or representative of a law firm, Institution, or Representative of the Government of India. Choose the appropriate designation and proceed.
  5. Fill in the required details in the boxes and click on submit to receive the password from the registered email address and mobile number.
  6. Using the username and password log into the application corner.
  7. Click on the NGT button to proceed and agree to the terms and conditions to reach the User Account Home Page.
  8. To initiate e-filing, click on the petition store.
  9. Click on petition filing and fill in the details of the petition in the boxes and click on ‘save and next’ button to continue.
  10. A reference number will be given after filling in the basic details.
  11. Choose the petitioner type from the organization, individual and in-person and add the required details of the petitioner and click the ‘submit’ button.
  12. Choose the type of respondent from ‘organization or ‘individual’ and add the details. Click the ‘submit’ button.
  13. Fill in the details of the representative of the petitioner.
  14. Select ‘online’ to create and submit an application or select ‘offline’ to generate an offline application and convert it to pdf.
  15. Add the required documents for the complaint and submit them. A final preview of the application will appear.
  16. Move on to the payment section and select the mode of payment. After selecting the mode of payment, click on ‘save and continue’. The application is complete after the payment.

The filing of petitions online helps the applicants to track the proceeding; the users have easy access to the cases and they will be able to know the status of the case through this portal. This also helps them file their responses when the court seeks them.
