Independent regulator for environment clearance

Independent regulator for environment clearance

Believing that India needs to focus on creating a low carbon economy, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said an independent regulator would soon revamp the process of granting environmental clearance and help protect the ecology without bringing back "the hated licence permit raj".

Speaking at a seminar on "Global Environment and Disaster Management: Law and Society" in the national capital on Sunday, the prime minister said that environmental safeguards are stronger today than they were two decades ago. "We hope to establish an independent regulator - the national environment appraisal and monitoring authority soon. This authority could lead to a complete change in the process of granting environmental clearances. Staffed by dedicated professionals, it will work on a full time basis to evolve better and more objective standards of scrutiny,” he further said.

PM said that the upcoming national environmental appraisal and monitoring authority will change the process of giving environment clearance to projects.

He also said that the government has supported the legislation pertaining to environment and a law for creating special environment tribunals will also help by lessening the burden on the courts
