810 trees to make way for Namma Metro Phase 2 13.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
With 206 trees set to be felled and 604 to be "affected" to make way for Namma Metro's Gottigere-Nagawara line and the depot at Kothnur, BBMP forest officials are planning to save nearly 200 of them through translocation. The 21.25-km North-South corridor in phase-2 is a crucial stretch not only for providing an option for easy commute between two ends of the city, but also for the Metro link to Kempegowda International Airport (phase-2B). Though the elevated stretch is only seven kilometres long, 438 trees will be cut or trimmed to make space for the stretch. The 13.8-km underground section will claim 252 trees, most of them for the stations, as per the Environment Impact Assessment report for the project. Another 120 trees will be axed for the proposed depot on 33 acres in Kothnur, says the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL). While the BMRCL has proposed translocating 65 trees at a total cost of Rs 2 lakh, sources in BBMP said Metro authorities have agreed to a plan to transplant about ...

Now, post-facto green clearances for projects 11.6.2017 DNA: Top News
The Environment Ministry is all set to begin appraisal of the projects that have violated green norms for granting them post-facto clearances. The move is aimed at giving a much-needed boost to the real-estate and infrastructure sectors and also help the state governments in clearing projects at a faster pace. The ministry has constituted an expert panel to adjudicate on projects that have begun work without prior environmental clearances and related studies. It notified the panel on Tuesday under provisions of the Environment Protection Act, and it would have a term of three-years to appraise and regularise projects involved in environmental violations, procedural lapses and non-compliance. If the panel concludes that any project will cause environmental degradation, it would be closed down. On the basis of environmental damage assessed or financial benefit the project proponents have derived, the panel will also recommend a remediation action plan. The 11-member panel will be chaired by SR Wate, former ...

Our order would decide fate of real-estate projects cleared by states: NGT 5.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The National Green Tribunal has put various state governments on notice saying its order would decide the fate of various real estate projects which have been processed by notifying their amended building bye-laws. The NGT had earlier refused to stay the Environment Ministrys December 9 notification which had exempted building and construction projects of all sizes from the process of environment impact assessment (EIA) and prior environmental clearance before beginning construction. For smaller projects (less than 20,000 sq m) it even has a "self-declaration" clause, which will ensure issuance of permission from urban local bodies. For larger projects of more than 20,000 sq m size the EC and building permission will be given by urban local bodies simultaneously in an "integrated format" A vacation bench headed by Justice Dalip Singh, however, has now made it clear that if any proposal of the states are processed and approval is granted, then MoEF shall communicate them that it would be subject to final ...
