Within 100 km of the Line of Control or the border, the Center has sought to exempt highway projects with a defence or strategic significance from the need for environmental clearance. These projects are delicate by nature and frequently need to be completed as quickly as possible while taking strategic, defensive, and security issues into account.
The Char Dham project in Uttarakhand, as well as many other projects in the Himalayas and the northeast that are located within 100 kilometres of the border or the Line of Control, will not need the green light under the revised policy. To improve connection to the Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunothri, and Gangotri shrines, the project entails expanding 899 km of roads in ecologically delicate regions of Uttarakhand.
Airport terminal building extension projects that do not result in an increase in the airport’s existing footprint are likewise free from seeking green approval, according to the Environment Ministry.
The exemption level for biomass-based power plants that also utilise auxiliary fuels like coal, lignite, or petroleum products is raised by up to 15%, and the amount of fish that can be handled by ports and harbours that only handle fish is increased by the same percentage.
