Friday, February 25, 2011
NEW DELHI - The Economic Survey released Friday has called for careful planning and customised policies to ensure that green growth strategies do not result in slow growth.
The survey tabled by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherkee in both houses of parliament said it was a challenge to maintain proper balance between green policies and growth in the country.
“The increasing importance of climate-related issues should not shake the foundations of our inclusive growth strategy,” it said.
Concerns have been raised by the industry in the past few months over the stringent implementation of green laws by the environment ministry.
