Subject Airports, Ports may no longer need green clearance: Nitin Gadkari

Airports and ports may not need environment clearance any more, if a proposal by Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road Transport, Highways, Shipping, Water Resources and Ganga Rejuvenation, goes through.

“The original Constitution framed by Baba Saheb Ambedkar doesn’t not asks for green clearance from the Ministry of Environment and Forest while giving approvals for Major Ports and Airports,” said Gadkari at a conference here.

“Why ask for environment and forest clearances which delay developmental work?” he remarked.

The Minister said he has already discussed doing away with environment and forest clearance with the Law Minister. “He has asked me to send him a file for consideration, after which we can issue a notification,” he said at a ceremony to mark an MoU between the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and State Bank of India.
