Many new thermal power stations (TPS) are being constructed in the country to meet the increasing demand of energy for various purposes of human beings. The effect of such TPS is generation of waste which includes diverse range of chemicals and flu gas. Another threat to environment by power stations is fly ash which contains hazardous elements which enters in the food chain of organisms and responsible for adverse effect of bioaccumulation. In today’s world with increasing global change in the climate, vegetation plays a main role in reducing pollution and high temperature. Thus, the study of vegetation in relation to abatement of air pollution becomes extremely important. Remote Sensing and GIS are the appropriate tools for the study of vegetation for Land use/Land cover study. Thus in the present investigation an attempt has been made to study the actual status of vegetation around the power station near Nagpur with the help of GIS technology.
