Expressing concern over the delay in granting forest clearances under the Forest Conservation Act (FCA), Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu has emphasized on evolving a mechanism to expedite the clearance cases of FCA, so that work on developmental projects in the State could be started at the earliest and completed within the stipulated time period.
