Aviation ministry to create simplified regulatory regime to speed up clearances for aviation projects

The civil aviation ministry will create a simplified regulatory regime to speed up clearances of aviation projects such as new airports development and expansion while taking due care of environment sustainability. In a white paper titled 'National Green Aviation Policy', the ministry said there would be a special provision and timelines that would be worked out in collaboration with Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), central and state government bodies, environment ministry and pollution control boards for making bio-jet fuels commercially viable.

According to the paper, watchdog would assess and understand emissions from all aviation related sources, their contribution to the local air quality and their effect on compliance with local air quality regulations, as per the paper. As part of the proposed green aviation policy, the DGCA would assess and understand emissions from all aviation related sources and their contribution to the local air quality. DGCA will work with aviation stakeholders and other government authorities with framework to adopt measures to reduce emissions in all areas -- aircraft, ground support, airport infrastructure and landside access traffic. Among others, airports would adopt local air quality monitoring system and programs to monitoring the air quality around airport.

Further, the paper noted that the stakeholders would work closely with government agencies, local bodies for effective waste management around the airport to ensure reduced bird hazards and safe airport operation. A centre of excellence for green aviation has also been proposed, that would focus on identifying environment friendly solutions, research, competency and skill developments and aviation programmes, among others. India is one of the fastest growing domestic aviation markets and is projected to become the world's third largest air passenger market in 10 years.
