Pro-Active and Responsive facilitation by Interactive, Virtuous and Environmental Single-window Hub (Parivesh) was launched by Prime Minister in August last year on World Biofuel Day, as single-window integrated environmental management system, developed under the ‘Digital India’ initiative.
It is an ambitious web-based single-window system ‘Parivesh’ will be rolled-out at state levels bringing an end to the clearance obstacles for entrepreneurs.
What is Parivesh?
PARIVESH is a web based, role based workflow application which has been developed for online submission and monitoring of the proposals submitted by the proponents for seeking Environment, Forest, Wildlife and CRZ Clearances from Central, State and district level authorities.
It has been designed, developed and hosted by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, with technical support from National Informatics Centre, (NIC).
It automates the entire tracking of proposals which includes online submission of a new proposal, editing/updating the details of proposals and displays status of the proposals at each stage of the workflow.
The automated system for submission, clearance and monitoring for environmental clearance has already been implemented at the Central level, while various States starting from Gujarat will begin to implement the scheme by January 15.
