     clearance with various conditions as stipulated therein. None from the project proponent side
     appeared before the Authority. However the Project was taken up for consideration in view of

     Town ship project, green belt development scheme, solid waste management scheme, bio-
     medical waste management scheme, solar energy conservation measures and traffic circulation
     plan submitted by the project proponent are not self explanatory and satisfactory.

     14.    M/S Parsavnath Developers Ltd.-EC for construction of IT/ITES SEZ project at
            sohna Road, Distt. Gurgaon:
       This project has been recommended by the SEAC in its 21st meeting for granting
environmental clearance with various conditions as stipulated therein. The representative of
Project Proponent and their consultant informed that this project is for construction of IT/ITES
SEZ project at Village- Sohna and Mohammadpur Gujjar, Tehsil- Sohna, Distt. Gurgaon. It was
informed that they intent to setup IT/ITS SEZ
on 427050 Sq.mt of area in village- Sohna and Mohammadpur Gujjar. They have already
acquired the land on lease for which MOEF GOI has already issued notification.
    1. The Authority observed that village-Mohammadpur Gujjar falls in Aravalli area as per
       report of District revenue Officer, Gurgoan. In addition village Sohna and Mohammadpur
       also fall in Aravalli area as well as closed under section 4&5 of PLPA 1900 as per the list
       obtained from Deputy Conservator of Forest Gurgaon.
    2. The project proponent has submitted a report of Tehsildar Gurgaon stating that this area
       is not covered under Aravalli Notification dated 07.05.92.
    3. As per the report of District Revenue Officer, the category of the land in this village is
       “Gair Mumkin Pahar” thereby falling under Aravalli notification dated 07.05.92. The
       certificate given by Tehsildar thus does not appear to the correct. It needs further
       verification Deputy Commissioner Gurgaon to be informed accordingly.
    4. In addition, the power requirement of the project is quite high and the supply is not
       assured by any power utility. The project proponent has proposed a coal based captive
       power plant of 75 MW which does not appear to be feasible and could require separate
       Environmental Clearance for this.
    5. The project area also falls in over exploited zone and there is no surety of supply of
       water from NCR canal which the project proponent is claiming. Therefore the project
       proponent has to obtain prior permission from CGWA for utilizing the ground water.

      The above points being crucial to the environment needs further examination and appraisal.
      It was therefore decided to refer back this case to SEAC to further examine and appraise
      this project on the aspects explained above.
