PM launches single window integrated environment management system

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched a single window hub for online submission, monitoring and management of proposals submitted to the Environment Ministry by project proponents to seek various types of clearances.

The Prime Minister launched Pro-Active and Responsive facilitation by Interactive, Virtuous and Environmental Single-window Hub (PARIVESH) on the occasion of World Biofuel Day.

An official statement said ‘PARIVESH’ is a Single-Window Integrated Environmental Management System, developed in pursuance of the spirit of ‘Digital India’ and capturing the essence of “minimum Government and maximum governance”.

In a series of tweets, Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan said PARIVESH automates the entire process of submitting the application and tracking the status of such proposals at each stage of processing.

He emphasised that with the launch of PARIVESH, the Prime Minister’s vision for e-governance and enhancing ease of doing responsible business is being translated into action by the Ministry. (AGENCIES)
