Mahagenco fails to get green nod for coal mine again
One would expect that Mahagenco would get the green nod, now that the hearing had been held. However, callousness on part of the officials concerned has delayed the clearance again. They forgot to submit a proper form with all required documents and hence, the application was put on hold by expert appraisal committee (EAC) of ministry of environment, forests and climate change (MoEFCC). Form 2 on MoEFCC website should be filled with all details and correct information. One month of baseline data as the given data is almost three years old and validity of baseline data is about to expire. EIA report should be revised as per the terms of reference (ToR) granted for the project. Stage-I forest clearance for forest land of 215 hectare for diversion of non-forestry activity should be submitted.
