SC clears decks for new airport at Goa's Mopa

Jan 16, 2020 22:08 IST

The Supreme Court on Thursday cleared the decks for construction of an international airport at Mopa in Goa by lifting the suspension on environmental clearance granted for the project. The top court in March last year had suspended the environmental clearance granted for the greenfield airport and directed an expert committee to revisit the decision in light of its impact on the Western Ghats' ecology. While lifting the suspension on the EC, the bench noted the assurance by GMR Goa International Airport Limited that it would adopt a "zero carbon programme" both in the construction and operational phases of the airport.
