SC examines scheme to remedy damage due to illegal mining in 3 districts 25.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court has refused blanket approval of the Comprehensive Environment Plan for the Mining Impact Zone (CEPMIZ) scheme, an ameliorative measure for the environmental damage wreaked by illegal mining in Ballari, Chitradurga and Tumakuru districts of Karnataka. "The entire CEPMIZ scheme need not be approved in one go and such approval may be considered and accorded in phases. The initial activity identified, namely, construction of conveyor belt system, railway sidings and railway sub-lines needs to be prioritised," a three-judge bench presided over by Justice Ranjan Gogoi said. It is only after a decision is taken on constructing those infrastructure and a noticeable headway is made, that the other ameliorative and mitigative socio-economic measures can have any relevance, the bench, also comprising Justices Prafulla C Pant and A M Khanwilkar added. The court was examining the CEPMIZ scheme, submitted by the Karnataka government as well as the Central Empowered Committee and considered the object ...

Centre rekindles dialogue on Ghats 24.3.2017 DNA: Top News
Rekindling the process of consultations with state governments, the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has written to all six Western Ghats states, asking them to submit their views on how much of the eco-sensitive area they want to retain in the ecologically fragile Ghats. Senior officials from the ministry confirmed that they have written to chief secretaries of all states.

The draft notification is based on the report of the K Kasturirangan led High-Level Working Group.
