The foremost contribution and aim of the paper are to investigate the likelihood of thermal air pollution vulnerabilities in a selected sample thermal power station of India (NTTPs), at the regional level as an exemplary. The paper climaxes the stringent decision making of Centre and State through the stricter implementation of legal and regulatory frameworks with its synergetic efforts of various amenabilities. The remainder of the paper is organized as follows: (a) to emphasize long term environmental management anomalies in selected thermal power stations through descriptive statistical analytical tools and (b) to present the empirical results of addressing the regional issue of environmental – climate-related challenges of thermal power plants with perseverance-based policy recommendations through a robust focus on material economics.
