Environment nod expected for Wadhawan Port in 3 months

Wadhavan Port, an all-weather facility located next to Dahanu near Maharashtra-Gujarat border is expected to get environment clearance in the next three months.

The port being planned by Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) has faced stiff resistance from locals and environmentalists.

It has to get environment and coastal regulation zone nods to proceed with the implementation plans.

Anil Diggikar, chairman of JNPT said, “Government of Maharashtra through the environment department has approached the Union government. The earlier port site was on land, while the one now is in the sea.”

Discussions are in progress and an initial meeting between Ministry of Shipping and Ministry of Environment and Forest has already taken place.
