Nation's news paper on Environment 
Green nod- a major rebuff for Make in India!


Are there any political class and bureaucratic sync mess up?
 
Ever since it was brought to power after huge mandate, BJP claimed to reform and ease out norms of environment &
forests to facilitate the ease of doing business in India. Prakash Javadekar blows trumpet of easing norms of green
ministry in all his public address. Yet the corporates and the investing firms/applicants have been gripped with huge
apprehensions coupled with under supplied clarification of norms. Issuance of guidelines to SEIAA, constitution of SEIAA, and delayed green nod have hit hard on prime minister's vision of Make in India. Every state SEIAA have set
their own norms and guidelines to approve the EC in the absence of any standing and most awaited guidelines & orders from MOEF&CC. Formation  of SEIAA Haryana delayed by 8 months has piled up over 200 files awaiting
consideration for issuance of EC. There are over 33,000 small mines in Rajasthan awaiting EC due to lack of infrastructure & manpower availability and clarity on B-1 & B-2 from MOEF&CC. Transparency and tracking of projects in SEIAA Rajasthan is concealed and in few other state updating of website is lagging. Deemed EC sanction as mentioned in the EIA Notification 2006 is not valued by state PCB's leaving the investors helpless and pushing them to courts.Office Memorandum and Circulars have been defined as  administrative orders by certain high courts, NGT as well as Supreme Courts, yet the same are being valued and paid more preferences by the Regulators. Approvals from PCB's have been delayed over years and units have been neglected at large. Rajasthan has never been investor's paradise due to geographic restrictions and many other unfavorable scenarios. There are over hundreds of units closed down due to non-issuance of Consent to operate. There is unattendedmalpractices of certain officers engaged in running their own consultancy organizations under the name and title of their kith and kin,and mold the laws and norms to suit their needs aggregate green corruption. All the departmental seniors know this fact. Visiting hours have been fixed by MOEF&CC as well as PCB's making the investors waiting in queue contradicting the online tracking and transparency of the system. Such hard-core technical departments, as per the mandate are to be headed by a person with scientific and administrative background so that there is no conflict with any statutory provisions. There should be a conceded possibility of appointing a practical visionary to head such department alike other
technical departments so that the projects can  be valued and disposed off on merits without any delaying tactics and pretext influenced by unbiased opinion. Besides all this, the green concerns are confined to papers only and ground realities at large are alarming. Over lapping of norms and inter departmental approvals have smudged and  accelerated the impendence of Make in India. State governments and all political class have been racing to
attain mileage of huge investment agreements rather than ease of norms and facilitating the investors. On the other hand,'there has to be conscious amongst the investors to care for Environment & Forests on their own rather than being influenced by mandate. EC compliances have to be religiously followed. The consultant's at large must
educate the small miners and make them realize the importance of Environment & forests. Issuance of EC is not the
end but it is just a beginning'says the Chairman SEAC,Rajasthan
