Project industry welcomes online environment clearance

Indian industry and project proponents have welcomed online environment clearances for industrial and infrastructure projects launched by the Ministry of Environment and Forest recently.

Although the online submission for Terms of Reference and Environment clearance proposals came into effect from June 5, the process will be made entirely online from July 1, 2014. In fact, ToR and EC proposals will be accepted only online by the environment ministry.

The move, seen as critical to project development and implementation, is expected to improve transparency in the entire system.

Online mechanism will monitor project approval and compliance stage wise. It will also ensure security of information while simultaneously maintaining transparency in dealings between the environment ministry and the project applicant.
