Consultation of local community

Comment on consultation of local community
the project is exempt from public hearing as the site is located in a notified power SEZ in October 2008 (MoEF Report 2013) public hearing procedure, which is a critical part of project clearance and helps to understand and mitigate the concerns of local people, has been bypassed on one pretext or another (same report:77)

Displacement of people

Comment on displacement of people
It is clear that this community, which depends on the coasts for their livelihood is the most vulnerable and most hit by development projects. Their economy depends on the health of the sea and its interface with land. Projects at the coast do not often respect the rights of fisherfolk, as unlike farmers and settled villagers, their access is not encoded and recognized. This is what clearly has happened in Mundra and needs to be urgently addressed. (MoEF 2013:68) - according to the villagers is unlawful and unjustified, as gauchar land cannot be diverted for anything other than public purpose. --> in many villages the entire common land had been acquired. Given the pastoral nature of local economies, there is no doubt that this would have had adverse impacts on people, particularly the poor.

Source of water extraction

Source of water extraction
Surface water ()
Comment on source of water extraction
Source of water for the power plant is sea water from the Gulf of Kutch. The Mundra Power Plant directly uses sea water for cooling system. For use in boilers and other auxiliary units water is purified through a process of reverse osmosis in RO plant. Here, 47 million litres of fresh water can be produced every day. Boilers require demineralised water which is produced in DM plants.

Overall comment

Overall comment
Environment degradation: The Committee is clear that there have been huge changes in the landscape of the Adani Port and SEZ area, including changes in the creeks – crucial to ensure the health of the mangroves and water system of this marine outfall area. - creeks showing signs of damage, because of soil deposition blocking access of seawater into the area (MoFE 2013:16) - Mangrove damage - The examination by the Committee shows that the soil in the area is permeable and without safeguards it will lead to contamination (p.46).
