MoEF accepts some HLC recommendations

Ministry looks to appoint consultant to draft two new laws

The controversial report of the High-Level Committee (HLC) led by the former Cabinet Secretary, T.S.R. Subramanian, seems to have been partially accepted by the Union Ministry of Environment and it is looking to appoint a technical consultant to draft two new laws.

Official sources said hiring a consultant was the best way to go about implementing some of the 55 recommendations.

Some of the administrative recommendations have been accepted even as the report is being considered by the Ministry. Sources said recommendations with legal implications were being examined by the Ministry. The HLC report has suggested that some laws can be amalgamated, which would be done by the consultant while the Ministry is looking at laws that needed refinement.

The HLC has made important observations and 55 recommendations, according to an advertisement on the Ministry’s website.
