New Delhi: Brushing aside concerns, the environment ministry on Wednesday granted clearance to a proposed international airport at Mopa village in Goa to be built at a cost of Rs.3,000 crore.
The approval for the project, however, drew flak from environmentalists, who have repeatedly flagged flaws in the project. They said they would approach the National Green Tribunal (NGT) against the environmental clearance.
The clearance came after the ministry’s expert appraisal committee (EAC) recommended it at its meeting on 20 October.
