Srivilliputhur WLVirudhunagarDFO Not-RecommendedMajority portion of the project falls inside core area of Srivilliputhur Megamalai Tiger Reserve and in the heart of nilgiri tahr habitat and elephant corridor.
VirudhunagarCF Not-RecommendedThe electrification of Arulmigu Sundara Mahalingam Swamy Thirukkovil by laying 11 KV HT XLPE underground Electric Cable will be detrimental to the ecological integrity of the area. The laying of the cable line would disturb the pristine forests and ecologically sensitive habitat of Nilgiri Tahr. It would destabilize the profile of the hilly slopes / soils. I also here by accept the observations/ remarks made by the Deputy Director in his recommendation report. Hence, the proposal is not recommended.No
