DivisionCircleRecommendation ByRecommendationReasonLetter Whether CF agreed
DharmapuriDharmapuriDFO RecommendedThe proposed road connects Thimmalanmedu and Kotturmalai villages. Until now there is no any other alternative road for them to drive vehicles. This is the long lasting demand by the village peoples for the past ten years. This demand has also been raised in the Legislative Assembly often. The project proponent has given undertakings to bear the cost of Net Present Value, Additional Net Present Value, Compensatory Afforestation with maintenance and lease rent as fixed by the Forest Department at the time of sanction along with any escalation in future for the forest land to be diverted etc. The work will be permitted after strict supervision of Forest Officers. Possible damage to wild flora and fauna due to this project is very low. Considering the above facts and field observations, I recommend this proposal for seeking diversion of land.
DharmapuriCF RecommendedThe proposed road is very much useful to the people those who are living in the Kotturmalai habitation which is having a population of 500 Nos in Vattuvanahalli Panchayat, Pennagaram Block. By formation of this road, the people will get the benefit to go over to school, market and hospital using vehicular transportation and also it will help to improve the Social Economic development of the individuals. Therefore, the proposed formation of road from Thimmalanmedu to Kotturmalai village in Dharmapuri District is imperatively required considering the long term demand by the village peoples and demand raised in the Legislative Assembly.Yes
