Abstract: The environmental change and ecological preservation are the principle issues of this century. India ranks as the second biggest in the populace, the fourth biggest in energy utilization and third biggest greenhouse maker and blazes ten folds fuel wood when contrasted with the United States. With a specific end goal to control the greenhouse outflows and for empowering countries for taking applicable measures the UN has concocted the matter of carbon exchanging on the premise of discharge moderation accomplished by the government and corporate firms by employing environmentally friendly technology for their production activity. The coal fired power generation in India is the greatest polluter and in the meantime gives the greatest chance to outflow lessening and procuring of carbon credits. In no time, India is creating the second most astounding number of carbon credits on the planet and is next just to China. In contrast with the developed countries the carbon emission level in India is substantially less. This gives enough opportunities to its industry to convey carbon units and seat points of interest out of its exchanging. With this vast potential to acquire carbon credits, India has a enormous degree for carbon consultancy organizations to flourish and is going to add another extent to the environmental and wealth related organizations zone. This paper presents an estimation of emission mitigation and carbon credit for a biogas electricity plant located in Maharashtra
