The project proposals for the Upper Penganga (Sapli Dam) at Hingoli District and Kanhan River (Kochi Barrage) Project at Nagpur, Maharashtra, are pending for environment clearance for want of certain additional information.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Environment and Forests (Independent), Ms Jayanthi Natarajan, in a written reply to a question by Mr Govindrao Adik and Mr Sanjay Raut in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

The Environmental Impact Assessment Notification, 2006, provides for a time limit of 105 days for taking decision after receipt of complete information from the project proponents.
