Garo HillsGaro HillsDFO RecommendedThe main purpose of this project is for scientific data collection, which ultimately helpful for policy makers and planners. Since the area required very small 0.01ha only, and moreover it will no affect much on the environment, therefore I recommended that this project may be given approval.
Garo HillsCF RecommendedSince it is for scientific data collection of flow of Simsang River, it will be helpful for concern department to predict the flood alertness and can give warning to the people especially those who are living in the vicinity of the river bank area. It will also be helpful for planners and policy makers in future.Yes
Nodal Officer RecommendedThe proposal pertains to installation of the Hydrological Observation Station near Simsang River, South Garo Hills District, Territorial Division, Baghmara. It is an activity under National Hydrology Project, Govt. of India. The data collected from the observation station will be used for water resources planning and for flood prediction. The area being diverted is only 0.01 Ha, with no tree felling. I therefore, concur to the views of Divisional Forest Officer T and Conservator of Forests T for diversion of the forest land for the aforementioned purpose.
