Now, single portal for three clearances
of Environment, Forests and Climate Change launched a single portal for online submission and monitoring of environment, forests and wildlife clearance on March 15. Under the new system, wildlife clearance would be integreted with forest and environment. The aim is to bring about more transparency and accountability in the process of giving a green signal to forest, environment and wildlife projects. Earlier, getting clearances took months as many projects had to go through the three clearances—environment, forest and wildlife—separately. The single portal, which will be available online 24x7, aims to reduce the turnaround time for activity and also seeks to make real-time information available to citizens.
