Online Environment Clearance
With the rising problem of environment insecurity, environment clearance has essentially become very important. Whereas at one hand the idea of environment clearance is serving a noble purpose in maintaining environment security, on the other hand the delay in the process of clearance has caused much trouble in the speedy implementation of the planned infrastructural and development projects in the country. Thus, an online system of environment clearance was recently launched in order to ensure a speedy and transparent environment clearance. Since its launch, the system operators and users both have been facing technical problems which are a huge obstruction in the successful working of the online system. Thus, I raised this issue in the parliament and also demanded to seek information regarding the steps taken by the government to overcome the problem. In my opinion the system of online environment clearance can be a big asset if the problems could be tackled and overcome.
