DivisionCircleRecommendation ByRecommendationReasonLetter Whether CF agreed
Sonitpur EastC.F N.A.C, TezpurDFO RecommendedThe setting up of a domestic Greenfield Airport at Hollongi, Arunachal Pradesh is Govt. of India project and the area for the proposed airport has been handed over to Airport Authority of India by District Administration of Papum Pare, Arunachal Pradesh. The proposed area consists of a 132KV inter state transmission line maintained by Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd. The line corridor is interfering with the aircraft’s approach and take off tunnel as well as the boundary of Hollongi Airport and hence the shifting of the said high tension line is necessary. As the boundary of the proposed airport is along the boundary of Assam & Arunachal Pradesh, the shifting of the line is to be routed only through Assam state and the entire area on Assam side along the inter state boundary falls under Gohpur RF. Therefore in order to facilitate the construction of the airport at Hollongi, the diversion of the forest land which is the barest minimum required as above is recommended for acceptance.
C.F N.A.C, TezpurCF RecommendedThe construction of Nirjuli Transmission line from LOC No.42 to LOC No. 64 due to upcoming Green Field Airport at Holongi Arunachal Predesh is a Govt. of India Project harving National interest. It will improve overall power scenario as well as communication system without causing major damage to the Forest and environment and also the diversion of the forest land which is the barest minimum required, the proposal is recommended for acceptance as per guideline of MoEF & CC under F.C.Act,1980.
