Online Submission and Monitoring of Wildlife Clearance Operationalised
Apr 24, 2015

A web-based portal named Online Submission & Monitoring of Environmental, Forests and Wildlife Clearance (OSMEFWC) has been made operational.  The portal is accessible at efclearance.nic.in.

  • The portal is a single window interface provided to the user agencies for the submission of proposals for Environment, Forest and Wildlife Clearances and facilitates management in effective monitoring.

  • It automates the entire tracking of proposals, including online submission of a new proposal, editing/updating the details of proposals and displays the status of the proposals at each stage of the workflow.  The main objectives of the system include enhancing efficiency, transparency and accountability, besides education in turnaround time for activity and enhancing ease and convenience of the citizens.

The Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change had initiated an online system for submission and monitoring of Environmental and Forest Clearances under the provisions of Environment (Protection) Act, 1986 and the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980.  This had helped in bringing more transparency and accountability.   Considering the efficiency of the system, the Ministry has now decided to widen the scope of online processing system to the wildlife clearance system as well.
