State tells SC it filed for Kalasa-Banduri approval, Centre begs to differ 16.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka government has claimed before the Supreme Court that it had applied for forest clearance of the Kalasa-Banduri drinking water project. This is in clear contrast to the affidavit filed by the Union government before the court. It has received no proposal from Karnataka for environmental clearance of the project, the Union government has told the court. Neither has it so far accorded any permission to Karnataka for the works, the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change told the court on August 12, in an affidavit filed through advocate S Wasim A Qadri. However, contrary to the Centre's stand, the state government submitted a list of dates "to establish that applications had been made to the Ministry by Karnataka for forest clearance of the project". The court had, on August 3, asked the Centre and Karnataka government to submit if environmental and forest clearances were granted to the project. "It is a serious matter," the bench said, on a contention by a Goa-based NGO that no ...

The Union government has told the Supreme Court that it has received no proposal from Karnataka for environmental clearance of the Kalasa-Banduri project. It has also not accorded any permission to Karnataka for the project so far, it said.

It was described as an "ecological bomb" by Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, for its "negative impact on the states ecology."
