New townships, industrial townships, settlement colonies, commercial
complexes, hotel complexes, hospitals, industrial estates and office
complexes for 1,000 persons or more or discharging sewage of 50,000
litres per day or more with an investment upto Rs.50 crore or more
would be required to obtain environmental clearance from the Central
Government as required under EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment)
Notification, 1994.

A notification to this effect, amending the EIA Notification, 1994,
has been issued by the Ministry of Environment and Forests.

The Notification stipulates that new construction projects which were
undertaken without obtaining the clearance required under this
Notification and where construction work has not commenced upto plinth
level and new industrial estates where construction work has not
commenced or the expenditure does not exceed 25 per cent of the total
sanctioned cost shall be required to obtain clearance under the EIA
Notification, 1994.

Taking note of the increasing adverse impact on environment including
wetlands, rivers, streams, lakes, coastal waters and other water
bodies posing serious health hazards, the Ministry had issued a draft
Notification on 27th October 2003, inviting suggestions and objections
from public within a period of 60 days for amending the EIA
Notification to bring under its purview new projects relating to
construction of new townships, industrial townships, settlement
colonies, commercial complexes, hotel complexes, hospitals, industrial
estates and office complexes.
