Now, sin­gle por­tal for three clear­ances

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT - THE MIN­ISTRY

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.
