NGO raises fresh concerns over Parsik Hills quarrying 9.4.2018 Deccan Herald - News
An NGO has raised fresh concerns with Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis over the quarrying of Parsik Hills in Navi Mumbai as a quarry operator has obtained environment clearance for blasting at Borivali village in MIDC area. The Thane District level Environment Impact Assessment Authority (DEIAA) has given clearance to a private company to operate the quarry with a host of conditions such as prevention of dust pollution and development of green belt. The NGO, Shri Ekavira Aai Pratishthan (SEAP), has appealed to the chief minister to intervene and ensure that the Parsik Hill range, which has been plundered recklessly, should be protected from further quarrying to protect the health of the people living in the vicinity and prevent damage to ecological balance. The private operator is all set to start quarrying in an area where a small hill has nearly disappeared due to continuous blasting, Nandakumar Pawar, director of SEAP said in his e-mail to Fadnavis. He said his NGO is not the against ...

Chardham: NGT raps govt for not submitting muck dumping plan 5.4.2018 General News
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has rapped the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways for failing to submit a plan for disposal of muck from the Chardham highway project to provide all-weather connectivity to four holy towns of Uttarakhand. A bench headed by Acting Chairperson Justice Jawad Rahim took strong exception to the plea of the ministry seeking adjournment and directed that its previous undertaking to not cut trees would continue till the next date of hearing. The green panel reiterated that there would be no activity by the project proponent which would have adverse impact on environment. "In view of the serious challenge posed by the applicant and insistence by them for interim order, we acceded to the request of the respondent state and project proponent, we had adjourn to a short date. When the case is taken up today it is submitted that advocate for project proponent is not in a position to appear as he is busy... "Even muck dumping plan which we had directed to file .

Environment and Forest ministry gives clearance to INO project 28.3.2018 deccanherald.com
The Union ministry of environment and forest has overruled four objections raised by Tamil Nadu State Expert Appraisal Committee while granting environmental clearance to the Indian Neutrino Observatory (INO) as a "special case" with 51 conditions. The nod from the green ministry came a year after the southern bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) kept the previous environmental clearance "in abeyance because of the underground laboratorys proximity to the Mathikettan National Park" in Idukki, Kerala. After the NGTs rejection in March 2017, the project was reviewed once again in November 2017 by the Tamil Nadu SEAC. The state agency opined it could not appraise the INO proposal, because of "many technical features" and it should be handled by the Centre. Two main objections cited by the TN body for its inability to clear the INO were blasting in hard, composite rock and excavation of six lakh cubic metres of Charnockite rock to create a deep underground tunnel and need for geo-technical studies to ...

Will challenge clearance to Neutrino project: activists 27.3.2018 Deccan Herald - News
Environmentalists and locals on Tuesday scoffed at the Environment Clearance accorded to the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) to set up a lab in Theni district, declaring that they would challenge the nod in the National Green Tribunal. The Ministry of Environment and Forests on Monday gave its green signal for setting up the lab - the first of its kind in India that would study atmospheric neutrinos produced by cosmic rays in a 1,200m deep cave under a mountain - in the forests near Bodinayakkanur, 525 km from here. The activists say the clearance was "illegal" since the ministry has called it a Category B project, for which Environmental Impact Assessment is not necessary, despite the Southern Bench of the National Green Tribunal cancelling the previous nod and asking the INO to apply for fresh clearance under. Poovulagin Nanbargal, an NGO that filed the petition before the NGT, said it will seek legal recourse against the clearance, calling the nod "illegal". "The NGT quashed the environmental ...
