<DIV></DIV>&gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;For articulating its starting premise, NEP might have 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;used, rather than cause-impact framework for 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;degradation, one of conflict-resolution between 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;environmental and development objectives, as is 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;central to development planning law - which finds no 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;mention in NEP... We believe that the key 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;environmental challenge is disregard / subversion of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;existing law and that new policy that fails to address 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;this is doomed to suffer from identical subversions 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;and is, therefore, quite unnecessary... designed to 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;let-appear "evolving and flexible policy framework" to 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;substitute conflict-resolving law - for pursuit of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;illegal deleterious development in exclusive "spirit 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;of partnership" ... No other hypothesis fits the 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;reality of recent development distortions in Delhi 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;amidst which NEP discourse has been going on...

<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; Subject: Request for DNSP text in html or doc 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; format, etc 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; To: [email protected] 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; Dear Sir / Madam, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; Draft National Environment Policy (DNEP), posted 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; at 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; http://envfor.nic.in/nep.htm says it is "intended 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; to 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; mainstream environmental concerns in all 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; development 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; activities" (p.3) and "key environmental 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; challenges 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; ... relate to the nexus of environmental 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; degradation 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; with poverty ... and economic growth" (p.3). 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; However, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; it makes no reference to planning and development 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; law 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; that does address these challenges or to processes 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; its subversion that do pose an emergent key 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; challenge. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; I wish to comment on DNEP from this perspective 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; and 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; would be grateful for the text in html or doc 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; format. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; Actually I would prefer to discuss this with 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; planning 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; and development experts involved in DNEP, which 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; does 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; say it was "prepared through a process of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; extensive 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; consultation with experts, as well as diverse 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; stakeholders, and this process is also documented" 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; (p.3), though chapter-6 (Process of formulation of 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; this policy) only says "(To be documented on 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; completion of the formulation process)" (p.39). I 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; would be grateful for names, etc, of planning and 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; development experts involved. 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; I also seek clarification of how DNEP connects to 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; National Common Minimum Programme (not itself 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; being 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; an 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; NCMP commitment while incorporating ideas for 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; issues 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; that are NCMP priorities for which other policy 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; initiatives are expected). 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; Yours sincerely, 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt; Gita Dewan Verma, Planner 
<DIV></DIV>&gt; &gt; &gt;
