Solid waste management projects get blanket exemption from taking prior green clearance
17-Jul-2017

In a major fillip to Swachh Bharat Mission, the environment ministry has given a blanket exemption to all solid waste management projects from taking prior environmental clearances. The exemption from prior environmental clearances for projects, barring landfill sites, comes as a major relief for Modi government’s cleanliness initiative as it would cut down the time taken by waste treatment projects to get off the ground. According to urban development ministry officials, the time taken, which was anywhere between six months and a year, would now be cut down by at least six months.
