KottayamHigh Range Circle, KottayamDFO RecommendedThe required area proposed is the bare minimum and would not cause much impact on the Forest eco system. The ecological impact caused due to diversion is negligible as the proposed project is underground linear with a total area requirement of 0.04 ha and no tree felling is involved. The area does not include National Park, Elephant Corridor, Tiger Reserve or Biosphere Reserve area, hence recommended. Under the above circumstances, the proposal for diversion is recommended for acceptance.
High Range Circle, KottayamCF RecommendedThe required area is the bare minimum and would not cause much impact on the Forest Eco system. The ecological impact caused due to diversion is negligible as the proposed project is linear along existing road with a total area requirement of 0.04Ha and no tree felling is involved. The project will help tribal and non tribal people living in interior areas to avoid fluctuation in electric supply.Yes
Nodal Officer RecommendedThe area supports moist deciduous vegetation and the alignment of UG cable laying is such that no trees are to be felled for the project. The required area proposed is the bare minimuma and would not cause much impact on the Forest eco system.
