DivisionCircleRecommendation ByRecommendationReasonLetter Whether CF agreed
DigboiC.F. E.A.C, JorhatDFO RecommendedThe proposed diversion is for underground pipeline along the existing RoW. No major impact is anticipated after installation . Also the gas pipeline will increase the availability of gas and reduce the pressure on forest areas for fuel wood. The 20.95 ha area which falls under Digboi division is hence recommended
DoomdoomaC.F. E.A.C, JorhatDFO RecommendedRecommended
C.F. E.A.C, JorhatCF RecommendedThe proposed project is a pipeline. Hence no major impact is anticipated after installation. Along with the recommendations ,few conditions are being laid down to minimize the adverse impacts during installation.Yes
