EIA Notification 2006 Amendment

23 March, 2009


In 2006, the Indian Environment and Forest Ministry (MoEF) comprehensively amended the EIA Notification despite widespread concerns that it promoted weak and undemocratic environmental regulatory systems. MoEF is now back with a further amendment extending a 3 year holiday from rigorous environmental compliance to highly polluting and resource intensive industrial and infrastructure sectors.
