India-China border: Now, faster green nod for roads, infrastructure


NEW DELHI: A government panel on Wednesday cleared as many as 53 projects, including power, railways, roads and irrigation canals, while the environment ministry decided to ensure faster green clearance for border roads and infrastructure projects for ITBP- a paramilitary force which is deployed along the India-China border.

The ministry, in fact, put ITBP projects at par with border roads projects of the defence ministry (mainly Army) for faster green clearance. It had last year granted the defence ministry a general approval for all road projects within 100 km of India-China border.

The decision to give faster clearance to border projects of ITBP comes in the backdrop of massive Chinese projects coming up across the border.
