Over 50 student unions, college environmental clubs, and other youth groups from across the country have condemned the passing of the EIA Notification 2020, calling for it to be halted and rewritten as recommended by environmental experts to lead India to a green recovery.

A detailed letter signed by student groups (including AISA, Youth4Swaraj, JNUSU, IISER, Jain University, Jindal Global Law School and others) was sent to the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Climate Change, containing their concerns about the latest EIA Draft, under the leadership of Tarang, Ashoka University Student Group, and led by 20-year-old Pune, Anjali Dalmia. In March 2020, during the COVID Pandemic, the MoEFCC issued a proposal for notification of the Environmental Impact Assessment ( EIA) 2020. Students and youth groups strongly protested against the proposal, saying it would be destructive to the environment. "We should use the EIA to get India out of the Covid-19 pandemic as an environmentally-conscious nation through a green recovery. Though economic revival is a national priority, it should be done without sacrificing the environment and society, as it is our natural ecosystem that will sustain us in the long run, "said Dalmia.
