New Delhi, Dec 6 (UNI) The Centre has given conditional approval to Rajasthan's proposals for 'Rejuvenation of Nakki lake in Mount Abu', the Rajya Sabha was informed today.

Minister of State for Environment and Forests Namo Narain Meena in a written reply said it, however, found the proposal of 'Conservation and Sustainable Management of Pushkar Sarovar in Ajmer' deficient in terms of certain administrative inputs and informed the state Government accordingly.

Several projects on multidisciplinary aspects of Climate Change have been completed and funded by the Government, Global Environment Facility (GEF) and also under bilateral cooperation.

India also received an allocation of 74.9 million US dollars to fund climate change projects (2006-2010) in the country through GEF, which is the multilateral financial mechanism, Mr Meena said in another reply.

Two wind energy projects covering an area of 340.46 hectares were also accorded approval under the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980 during the year 2005-06 by the Central Government in Dhule district of Maharashtra, in which no displacement of people was involved.

In projects where displacement of people was involved, the resettlement was done as per the Central Government and the concerned State Governments' Relief and Rehabilitation Policy.

In case of displacement of people belonging to the Scheduled Tribes, the views of Ministry of Tribal Affairs were taken into consideration, Minister of State for Environment and Forests S Regupathy told the House in a written reply.
