huge bribes had exchanged hands Neither the prime minister nor the then finance ministerP Chidambaramcan distance themselves from this issue Both are as culpable as the then telecom ministerA Raja? if for nothing else,then for something to leave behind If you are going to extract all the coal and destroy the forests if you are going to extract all the bauxite and destroy the forests what is going to be left This is where the role of government is absolutely critical because the destruction of the environment may provide benefits to some but it imposes social costs on many In order to deal with the social costs on the many governments have to intervene You can’t leave environmental issues to market forces Q: Countries in South Asia including India face an “increased frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events resulting in flooding landslides damage to property and infrastructure devastation of agricultural crops reduction of hydropower generation and negative impact on human health” according to a 2014 Asian Development Bank assessment of the economic costs of climate change In economic terms the total climate change cost to India could be 18% of its annual GDP by 2050 How can one look at or measure natural resources through an economic health and livelihood perspective We have to recognise that environmental issues in India are public health issues that environmental issues are livelihood issues and that if you don’t deal with environmental issues we are creating conditions that are simply intolerable for future generations A lot of our disasters are happening because of climate change or the loss of ecological cover There is a direct link between the loss of mangroves and the damage caused by the tsunami of 2004 There is an intimate link between what happened in Uttarakhand in 2013 and the manner in which roads were built in the mountain areas We have to understand that our human interventions are already causing ecological havoc It’s not that they are going to cause ecological havoc tomorrow but that they already are We tried to change the way we measure growth when I was a minister I kept saying that GDP should stand for Green Domestic Product not Gross Domestic Product Today the headlines say we are growing at 7% or 8% but it does not reflect the depletion of natural resources GDP numbers reflect depletion of physical capital but does not reflect the loss of natural capital A few countries — Norway Costa Rica Mexico — do report economic growth measured conventionally and also economic growth after factoring in environmental costs and benefits India should also be doing the same thing because then we will know what the real GDP is When we say real GDP it means adjusted for inflation so we should actually be measuring ‘real real GDP’ which is also adjusted for impact on natural resources Q: How can we bring the environment back into public discourse Well right now the public discourse is very anti-environment The public discourse is “ease of doing business” The big papers big industries and industry associations the prime minister himself his colleagues they are on a different path altogether The focus is on how to loosen environmental regulations File image of Jairam Ramesh as a rural development minister PTI They have completely emasculated the National Green Tribunal (NGT) They are loosening the Forest Rights Act They are completely denying Community Forest Rights there is a determined effort to weaken the Forest Conservation Act the Environment Protection Act This government believes that the environment is a regulatory burden it does not see it as a societal obligation it does not see it as something that is absolutely essential for India’s present and India’s future It sees the environment as a bottleneck in the ease of doing business That is the mindset Reducing regulations allowing state governments more power is a recipe for faster clearances For example the NGT was set up by an Act of Parliament in 2010 and they have not had the courage to come and amend the Act directly they have amended it through a back door through the Finance Act Q: What could be the fallout of the changes in regulations for appointments to the tribunal Will ex-judges be weary of coming on board Hopefully there will be no fallout because this is already being challenged in the courts My petition will be filed soon too This cannot go unchallenged But I don’t know what the Supreme Court is going to say frankly Q: Did you envisage that the NGT would achieve as much as it has in five years I have kept myself at a complete distance from the NGT after I set it up But yes the NGT achieved much it created a lot of public confidence A lot of people have written to me in the last couple of weeks very concerned about what the government has done What the NGT did in the ‘Art Of Living’ episode regarding the floodplains of the Yamuna I think displeased a lot of people The NGT is now only five years old but I think we were only the third country in the world to have a specialised quasi-judicial body for environmental matters But this government’s priority is very clear they don’t want the NGT They want to make the NGT an administrative body completely controlled by the ministry of environment which means controlled by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Q: If the legislations for protecting the environment are slowly being eroded how much judicial support can the environmental lobby hope for I don’t know the Supreme Court blows hot and blows cold But I have noticed in the past couple of months a distinct tendency of the Supreme Court to support the Executive Normally you would think that the courts would be an ally but particularly in the last 12 months the Supreme Court has been far more pro-Executive which does not necessarily mean pro-people mind you or pro-environment They are pro-government Q: On 11 May 2017 the apex body for considering issues of genetic modification the Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC) gave the nod for the commercial cultivation of GM mustard recommending that the ministry of environment approve it On 17 May the government informed the Supreme Court that it was yet to reach a decision on approving the crop This is similar to the situation in 2009 with BT brinjal which received approval from the GEAC but was not given the go-ahead by the ministry of environment You implemented a moratorium against its release in 2010 stating that the time should be used to “build a broader consensus so that as a country we are able to harness the full potential of GM technology in agriculture in a safe and sustainable manner” Do you think that the concerns raised then have been resolved now BT Brinjal was the first food crop so I wanted to be extra careful You see the Americans have a permissive approach to genetically modified technology and the Europeans have a prohibitive approach I followed a middle path which is the precautionary approach I was criticised for not approving Bt Brinjal but by February 2017 seven years had passed since the moratorium was imposed and this government has not removed it I had laid down three conditions for removing the moratorium: one set up an independent professional regulatory authority Two build up a consensus among the state governments Three have a protocol for scientific verification of tests which will be acceptable across the scientific community None of these conditions have been met Q: By 2015 over a million deaths in India were attributable to exposure to PM 25 a microscopic particulate matter about 30 times finer than human hair and posing the greatest risk to humans Ambient air pollution in India is an environmental issue that the government is concerned about However effective and synergised action is not being taken and there is evidence of poor implementation of suggested remedies Why They (the government) are taking air pollution in Delhi very seriously I’m not sure that they are taking air pollution in other parts (of India) seriously There is pollution in Vapi in Ankleshwar in Chembur in Chandrapur In fact when I was minister we had identified 88 critically polluted clusters in the country But Delhi is occupying a lot of the attention because it is the nation’s capital and it has international visibility The primary instruments which need to be strengthened are the Central Pollution Control Board and the State Pollution Control Boards These are the instruments of enforcement Remember the Environment Protection Act is very powerful You can issue closure notices you can issue show cause notices The enforcement of the laws is the problem We have a fine set of laws we have an extensive infrastructure of institutions and I think we just need to enforce these regulations and standards Enforcement is the big issue Enforcement means shaking up certain vested interests Maharashtra has had a fairly good history with the State Pollution Control Board Gujarat and Tamil Nadu are some of the better State Pollution Control Boards These boards their technical capacity must expand and they must be given autonomy from the government They have to be independent professional bodies Indiaspendorgis a data-driven public-interest journalism non-profit initiative scrutinising for veracity and context statements made by individuals and organisations in public life Chopra: West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday criticised the Centre for its decision to eliminate all subsidies for domestic LPG and said providing such financial support to the people is its social obligation File image of Mamata Banerjee AFP Banerjee said the poor class will be the worst affected by the action "This decision on stopping subsidy will cause havoc among the common people" she told a public rally this afternoon "To provide subsidy to the people is a social obligation —a humanitarian obligation of a government Subsidy does not come from somebody’s personal fund but from the pockets of the people" she said Banerjee had on Monday accused the BJP of deviating from its commitment to the masses and said it "does not care about the people" The Centre has ordered state-run oil companies to raise subsidised cooking gas prices by Rs 4 per cylinder every month to eliminate all the subsidies by March next year The government had previously asked oil marketing companies to raise the prices of subsidised domestic LPG by Rs 2 on 142-kg cylinder per month (excluding VAT) Every household is entitled to 12 cylinders of 142-kg each at subsidised rates in a year Any requirement beyond that is to be purchased at market price By: PTI | Kochi |

you are from the outside the journey oscillates between sheer optimism to downright fear very often” said Pallavi Sharda Top News Actress Pallavi Sharda says being an outsider it is the personal choice of actors to be aggressive about their work The actress had featured in a cameo in Karan Johar’s 2010 drama My Name is Khan before making her debut in Dus Tola opposite Manoj Bajpayee She is now be seen in the Academy-award nominated Lion and says doing the right film was important to her since she did not have “any advisors or mentors in the industry” “When you are from the outside the journey oscillates between sheer optimism to downright fear very often In the midst of all of this it was important for me to keep my head on my shoulders and remain sane and happy as a human above all” Pallavi told PTI “I have therefore always operated on the premise that work begets work I am very pleased with the repertoire of films I have been part of especially coming without a support system in the industry and in India generally…” Pallavi who has featured in Hindi films like Besharam and Hawaizaada feels in the West the emphasis is more on the content something which is not the case with Bollywood “The biggest takeaway in working on a film like ‘Lion’ is that a story and a script is paramount In Bollywood we are often encouraged to be part of films for reasons other than the story and the craftsmanship “It was amazing to work with a group of actors and technicians who put the film above individuality and it shows in the product It is a gut-wrenching story beautifully woven for the screen by director Garth Davis” It is for this reason that the Australia-born Indian the actress feels doing a small—-though beautifully etched out-—role in international cinema could give an actor more recognition than a run of the mill work in Bollywood “I agree that in International films it’s not the size or length of a role which counts it is about being a part of a worthy project and contributing to the graph of the narrative as a whole I have worked in a number of international projects including Lion – and have felt just as creatively satisfied in supporting roles as
