Accommodation Times News Service

Terming the ministry’s decision to exempt realty projects from seeking prior environmental clearance as ‘absurd’, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has issued notices to MoEF (Ministry of Environment and Forests) and MoUD (Ministry of Urban Development).

It all said that all the building projects for time being will be heed to tribunal’s order in the matter. The observation was made while hearing to a petition against the center Society by Protection of Environment and Biodiversity.

The changes were made in the decade long applicable rules and regulations put forward by the ministry under which a construction scheme of more than 20,000 square meters in size had to take up an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA).
