外文标题：Road projects along China border to get fast-track approval
NEW DELHI: After giving two quick green clearances to defence projects, the environment ministry has now decided to fast-track road projects along India-China border. These road projects within 100 kilometres of the Line of Actual Control (LAC) are crucial for troop movements and other related developments for security point of view.
A decision on environmental and forest clearances on building defence infrastructure in areas in the 100 km-range from the LAC can be taken by the state governments concerned, environment minister Prakash Javadekar said. "Construction of roads within 100 kilometres of Line of Actual Control will be given fast-track approval", said the environment minister Prakash Javadekar. A policy in this regard will be formulated very soon, he told reporters. The 4,056-km-long LAC with China touches four states — J&K, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Sikkim.
Interestingly, it is the second such decision keeping China in mind.
The ministry has earlier given its go ahead to set up a radar station at Narcondam in Andaman & Nicobar Islands.
The project was pending for long despite repeated requests from the defence establishment which wanted to install the radar at the strategic location in view of suspected Chinese presence and "listening post" on nearby Coco Island.
Though Coco Island in the Bay of Bengal belongs to Myanmar, China is learnt to have set up extensive infrastructure there.

Good decision... Really nice...
Congress and the leftist communist couldn't build a road by the bordr in 65 years --- will now be built in 5 years! No more leftist--- no more congress!
This political will was lacking in the previous GOVT's on such priority matters. We do hope these will be resolved now on fast track.
If results are not forthcoming in the next 3 months disillusionment is bound to set in. Let not that situation arise.
So far so good. What next?
The people are prepared to give Modi Sarkar a chance. They will be happily if Modi sarkar shows some results.
Good Decision taken,now the chinese troops will be a given a befitting reply if crossed.
This is modi style goverence
I am looking forward to efficiency in the government offices. Most of them just don't move
Right move. We need our neighbours to know we mean business, and that we cannot be taken for granted.
