An Environment Ministry panel has recommended conditional nod for a hydro-electric power project located on River Beas in Hamirpur district of Himachal Pradesh.

The Expert Appraisal Committee for River Valley and Hydro Power Projects (EAC) has recommended environment clearance for Dhaulasidh Project subject to submission of the updated avi-fauna list,an environment ministry official told PTI.

If the final clearance is given to the Rs 500 crore project,the SJVN Ltd – a joint venture of the Government of India and the Government of Himachal Pradesh — can execute it,the official said.
