National Biodiversity Authority reconsiders cases lacking compliance under the act

In a Memorandum issued on September 10, 2018, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change has directed the National Biodiversity Authority to consider all such cases where prior approval required to obtain any biological resource or knowledge associated thereto has not been obtained, including acts that may have occurred in the past. The Authority shall take into consideration the scientific evidence as well as any damages that might have been caused due to the lack of the required approval. The Authority shall ensure that only those cases are granted approval for future activities which would have otherwise been approved in the normal course.

With the direction to comply within a period of 100 days from the issue of this memorandum, this step is intended to conserve biological diversity, maintain sustainable use of its components and fair and equitable sharing of the benefits arising from its commercial use.
