Industrial Projects Green Nod
With the project monitoring group responsible for fast-tracking big-ticket investment projects having been shifted from the cabinet secretariat to the Prime Minister's Office, the Centre is considering an increase in the validity of environmental clearance from 5 years to 7 years for facilitating investments in the country and putting stalled projects back on track.

This will ease the pressure on companies who need to reapply for extension of environment clearance for any industrial project if there is a delay in project commissioning before the expiry of validity.
