Maharashtra Environment Secretary ValsaNair-Singh suggested the creation of the third appraisal committee for examining construction projects in Maharashtra.
The state, at present, has two appraisal committees.
one of which exclusively deals with construction projects in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region and the other looks after industry, mining and construction projects in the rest of the state.
ValsaNair said mining proposals take up most of the meetings, hence a new committee will have to be set up to scrutinize construction projects in the rest of state.
ValsaNair feels that setting up of a new committee for construction projects would reduce the load of the existing committees and thereby expedite the process of giving environmental clearance for mining projects. The state environment department wants to reduce the waiting period for a clearance to not more than three months.
She said environment clearance has been granted to 2,000 mining projects across the state in the past three months.
An environment clearance is mandatory for all mining projects between 0-5 hectare following a SC order. For projects above five hectare, an environment impact assessment study is needed. There are a few proposals in the above-five hectare category and all these are in the Thane-Raigad belt.
