screens all projects having an area of construction of more than 20000 sqm in the Mumbai metropolitan region and then decides whether to recommend their clearance to a higher authority the State Environment Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA) Ravi Bhushan Budhiraja chairperson of SEAC-2 said “Since the corporation has constructed without a valid environment clearance it is not in our jurisdiction to appraise the project till the higher authority or the state environment department takes action It is rare that a state agency is found violating rules However we don’t differentiate between private and public organisations while dealing with them” According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) the SEAC-2 has referred the proposal for action on the alleged violation to the SEIAA and the state environment department The committee said “Further the proposal will be appraised only after due examination and appropriate action is taken by the SEIAA
