Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki on Tuesday said the Centre has decided to exempt environmental clearance for road projects located within 100 km of international borders.

Speaking in Itanagar, a day after his meeting with Union Environment minister Prakash Javadekar in New Delhi, the Chief Minister said the decision would immensely benefit Arunachal Pradesh as it shares 1,080 km of international boundary with China. Arunachal Pradesh also shares 440 km border with Myanmar and 160 km with Bhutan.

Tuki said Javadekar had informed him of the decision and added that the Union ministry was considering extending the no-green clearance norm (within 100 km of international border) to other infrastructure development projects.

Arunachal Pradesh has been clamouring for funds as well as green clearance for construction of a road network along the international border, the lack of which has triggered migration of people away from the border areas.
