Power Projects for Environment Clearance

New Delhi: August 29,2012

There are 20 power projects awaiting environmental clearance and 28 power projects awaiting clearance for diversion of forest land.

166 power projects were granted environmental clearance and 143 power projects were granted forest clearance during the last three years.

Two power projects for environmental clearances and three power projects for forest clearance were rejected during the last three years.

The Ministry has taken a number of steps to ensure timely decisions on the applications for environmental clearances by: (i) constituting sector specific Expert Appraisal Committees (EACs) for appraisal of thermal, hydro and nuclear power projects, regular meeting of the EACs; (ii) preparation of sector specific technical guidance manuals which are posted on the Ministry’s website to prepare EIA reports addressing all the related issues. The EIA Notification, 2006 prescribes a time limit of 105 days from the day of receipt of complete information for according environmental clearance.

As and when complete information is submitted by the project proponent, the proposals are considered expeditiously for environmental clearance.

The main reasons for pendency are delay in submission of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report and Environment Management Plan (EMP) including public hearing report, deficiency in the EIA/EMP reports inadequate data, non-submission of complete information by the project proponents.

The above information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Environment and Forests Shrimati Jayanthi Natarajan to the Parliament.
