Joint Committee report on Gouravelli reservoir in Telangana, 25/11/2021
Joint Committee Report in OA NO 180 of 2021 (SZ) in the matter of Baddam Raji Reddy Siddipet District & Others Vs Union of India dated 25/11/2021.
The report was in pursuance to the NGT order in connection with change in scope of the flood flow canal and Gouravelli reservoir in Telangana.
Joint committee is of the opinion that, though the project proponent has obtained environmental clearance for flood flow canal project, amendment from MoEF&CC would have been obtained by project proponent in both the cases as the scope of the project has changed. Therefore, changing the scope of project without approval of MoEF&CC attracts violation of EIA notification 2006.
