Forest Clearance under Two Years of NDA

  • Forestland diversion for major development sectors
  • In the past two years (June 2014 until April 2016), the MoEF&CC has allowed about 47,473 hectares (ha) of forestland diversion including in-principle (Stage I) and final Stage II) clearances (see Table 3: Forest clearances granted to major sectors ).
  • Among these, mining accounts for highest share of forestland diversion, about 29 per cent. This is followed by total diversion for power sector (combining hydro power, wind power, thermal power and transmission lines) accounting for about 25.5 per cent.
