New Delhi: Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Tuesday that the government is mulling a new ranking system based on the performance of NGOs working in the field of environment.

“The government will bring out a new performance-based rating of NGOs working in the field of environment to encourage them,” he said after releasing the 10th edition of the directory of ‘Environmental NGOs in India – 2015’.

Javadekar also called for a need to add new features for the next edition of the directory to make it even more useful, comprehensive and user-friendly.

The current directory contains a list of about 2,300 NGOs across the country working towards environmental protection, conservation and awareness.

The Supreme Court on Friday asked the NGO Initiative for Inclusion Foundation (IIF) to give suggestions for effective implementation of a law to curb sexual harassment of women at workplaces, particularly in the private sector.

Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A. M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud sought the suggestions after the Central government in its affidavit claimed that it has taken steps to enforce the Protection of Women from Sexual Harassment at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.

Appearing for the IIF, senior counsel Sanjay Parikh said there was no implementation of the law in private companies.
