The Online Submission and Monitoring of Environmental Clearance (OSMEC), a system designed to speed up the approval of projects, has been held up in Kerala due to the delay in providing the necessary infrastructure.
In July, Union Minister for Environment and Forests Prakash Javadekar had launched the State portal for the OSMEC. But four months later, the online platform for projects requiring approval from the State Environment Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA) remains bogged down.
