September 23: Most projects need help with issues on land and environmental clearances, says Anil Swarup, Head of the Project Monitoring Group. “To ensure progress on land issues, we need to work with state governments,” he says, adding that 7 of the 30 projects monitored by PMG have got MoEF clearance now. He points out that projects under PMG review are not affected by the new land bill as they have either acquired or in the process of acquiring the land.
