Green norms for commercial projects to be relaxed


The Union environment ministry is set to ease clearance norms for townships and building and construction projects in or close to wildlife sanctuaries, national parks and eco-sensitive zones. Soon, for projects such as residential and commercial buildings, townships, hotels, hospitals and information technology parks, one will have to approach only the state government concerned; an environmental clearance from the Centre under the Environment Protection Act, 1986, won’t be required. The environment ministry’s forest advisory committee is slated to discuss the guidelines for construction of residential buildings in private forest land, under the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980. The committee has been asked to suggest changes to these Acts within two months.
