Rajasthan govt fast-tracks permission process for green industries

Jaipur, Feb 9 (KNN) To help entrepreneurs with smaller investments to set up green industries with more ease, the Rajasthan government has decided to fast- track the application process, according to a report in the TOI.

Following the new order, the Rajasthan State Pollution Control Board (RSPCB) has reduced the deadline for disposal of applications for green category industries to seven days for those with capital investment of Rs 5 crore and 15 days for those with capital investment of more than Rs 5 crore. The previous timeline was 120 days.


As per reports, the state government has not only reduced the timeline for the green industries but also for the industries in the red and orange category.

“Currently, the statutory timeline for disposal of consent and authorisation applications is within 120 days as per provision of various environmental laws. It is implicit that an entrepreneur has to obtain series of clearances from various departments to set up an industry. After detailed deliberation, the state board, with a perspective to rationalise and ensure expeditious disposal of applications, has decided to dispose the applications at its head office and regional offices within the reduced timelines,” said Naveen Mahajan, chairperson, RSPCB.

Every month, around 1,800 consent and authorisation applications are received at the state board under various environmental Acts and rules.

“The State government has taken up the initiative to attract more investments to the state,” he said.

After consent for setting up industry, the owner has to take another consent to operate, when he starts the production or operation of the unit. In case of the first application by entrepreneurs from red and orange category industries for consent to operate, it has been decided that the applications shall be disposed within 75 days at regional office level.  (KNN Bureau)
