NGT Urges to Form New Committee on Big Dam


The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Thursday made a hearing in Delhi regarding the special committee of the 2000 MW Lower Subansiri Hydro Electric Project.

The Assam Public Works (APW) and Tularam Gogoi have registered a case demanding a neutral committee for the solution of big dam.

The NGT, however, has shown vested interest to form a new committee saying that the committee members should understand the problem of Assam and its people.

The NGT said that the centre should not give one-sided decision forcefully.  

It may be mentioned that, one PM Scott (Hydrology) who is also a Government employee had violated the previous NGT judgment earlier. He is reportedly an employee of the Central Water Commission Department and also Vice-Chairman of the Brahmaputra Board Court.

Moreover, On April 18 last year, NGT directed the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoE&F) to consult all sides and resolve the objections of the 2000 MW Subansiri (Lower) hydro-power project and inform the Bench.
