EIA notification regulates the process of environment clearance for different projects. During lockdown, the Indian government came out with the draft Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) notification 2020 seeking to overhaul the norms governing the clearance process.
The draft came under severe criticism with experts and environmentalists alleging that it seeks to dilute the present laws. With storytellers like you, Let Me Breathe provided a platform for these views and reflections on the draft. We also shared a sample letter to ensure wider public participation and consultation before the changes are made. As a result,the Delhi High Court extended the period for giving suggestions till August 11.
