SC Why are some road projects exempted from prior green
We Care...!!!

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday requested the Union authorities to elucidate the logic behind its 2013 resolution exempting highway initiatives of lower than100km size from prior environmental clearances as a PIL alleged that it was being misused to subdivide huge highway initiatives into lower than 100km lengths to side-step the requirement of setting influence evaluation.
Challenging the 2013 notification issued by the setting ministry, ostensibly completed to hurry up highway initiatives to enhance connectivity, NGO ‘Association for Protection of Democratic Rights’ by means of advocate Prashant Bhushan stated, “All environmental regulations are being dismantled systematically in this country”. Bhushan stated the SC in two judgments — Lafarge case in 2011 and T N Godavarman Thirumulpad in 2014 — had pressured the necessity for organising of an unbiased environmental regulator because it had discovered that clearances to initiatives got as per the desires of the federal government, inflicting harm to the setting.
The Chief Justice S A Bobde-led bench requested further solicitor common Aishwarya Bhati to file the Centre’s response earlier than March 18.
