A fu­tile ef­fort at re­form

Down to Earth - - ON THE WEB -

The Par­lia­men­tary Stand­ing Com­mit­tee on Science and Tech­nol­ogy, En­vi­ron­ment and Forests has called for the TS R Subra­ma­nian Com­mit­tee Re­port to be scrapped and the is­sue looked at afresh. The com­mit­tee was formed to re­vise en­vi­ron­men­tal laws. The stand­ing com­mit­tee said that the com­mit­tee's rec­om­men­da­tions "would re­sult in an un­ac­cept­able di­lu­tion of the ex­ist­ing ar­chi­tec­ture es­tab­lished to pro­tect our en­vi­ron­ment"
