A 2. Air
A 3. Hazardous Solid waste
A 4. Safety
A 5. Noise
A 6. Cleaner Production and Waste Minimization
A 7. Green Belt and Other Plantation
A 8. Other Plantation

In every case, SEIAA Committee has directed project proponent to undertake Cleaner Production Practices / Assessment under term and condition no A 6. Also, as per A 8 of other condition, it shall be mandatory for the project management to submit half-yearly compliance report in respect of the stipulated prior environmental clearance terms and conditions in hard and soft copies to the regulatory authority concerned.
