Environmental Video Games and Indian Government


If the Vizag gas leak incident does not teach us the importance of having a proper environment impact assessment module in place, nothing else will. The EIS draft nitification notice period has been extended to 30th June. Read the Draft EIA here: http://moef.gov.in/draft-environment-impact-assessment-notification-2020/. An article on the notification by Mongabay can be read here: https://india.mongabay.com/2020/03/indias-proposed-overhaul-of-environment-clearance-rules-could-dilute-existing-regulations/. You may also follow the Twitter account by environment lawyers Kritika Dinesh and Meenakshi Kapoor, called Redraft EIA 2020 (@ReDraftEIA2020) for simplified tweets that explain the environmental impacts of the various points of the policy. If you are convinced that the draft EIA should be withdrawn, you may voice your objection to the policy on Let India Breathe here: https://letindiabreathe.in/WithdrawDraftEIA2020 and on Jhatkaa here: https://act.airalert.in/petitions/public-consultation-on-eia-draft-notification-2020
