In recent times, the concept of “plug-and-play” projects was making news. Consider the following statements with this respect:
1. All statutory clearances will be obtained by government before awarding the project
2. Plug and Play model ensures that infrastructure projects don’t get delayed
Which among the above is / are correct statements?

Answer: [C] Both 1 & 2
