How EIA thumbs its nose at environment: Pollute now, will forgive later. Public protests? Ignore.

The recent judgement in the Sterlite Copper case highlights two serious flaws with the draft Environmental Impact Assessment Notification. One, it allows ex post facto clearances to industrial units that violate environmental laws. Two, it expects the violators themselves to report the wrongs they have done, or government authorities to file complaints. People’s objections may not make any difference.
