Panaji: In what will stoke further the controversy on Mahadayi issue, Union Environment, Forest and Climate Change Ministry has written to Karnataka government that Kalsa Bhanduri project does not require Environment Clearance.

The recent letter by Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar nullifies his earlier communication to Karnataka government keeping his letter in abeyance.

“Let me make the position clear. Government of India has not kept in abeyance EIA notification 2006 and has also not kept in abeyance the rule which clarified that drinking water projects do not require EC,” Javadekar has said.

“Karnataka can start the work on Kalsa Bhanduri Nala project after gazette notification of the Tribunal and necessary forest and wildlife permissions,” he said.
