JSW Steel may go ahead with 12 mtpa Odisha steel project sans captive port 10.5.2018 Business Standard: News Now
Sajjan Jindal led JSW Steel might have to settle for its 12 million tonne mega steel mill proposed in Odisha without a captive port project. The port project, part of the steel maker's consolidated investment package, was considered key to its operations in the state.

What we can offer as an alternative to the company is a captive jetty. But, a decision on the captive jetty is not firmed up yet", the source added.The Odisha government has roped in Mecon Ltd to study the feasibility of the ..

Thane civic body gets no HC relief over waste dumping matter 7.5.2018 General News
The Bombay High Court has refused to grant any relief to the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) that had challenged a local court order denying it permission to dump solid waste at a private plot of land. Justice Mridula Bhatkar, presiding over the appeal filed by the TMC, also rapped the civic body for persisting with the said litigation even though a civil judge and the district court in Thane had found that the corporation had illegally been dumping solid waste at the site. In an order passed last week, Justice Bhatkar reminded the corporation that it was a "public body" that must adopt a "citizen-friendly approach," and not act as a "hostile", private litigant when it came to issues of public interest. The HC was hearing a second appeal filed by the TMC against a 2012 order of the Thane district and sessions court upholding a previous order of a local civil judge restraining the civic body from dumping any kind of waste, whether treated, or untreated, on the said site.

Supreme Court sets aside NGT order against Adani's Hazira Port 3.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
In a relief to the Adani Group, the Supreme Court has set aside the National Green Tribunal's (NGT) order cancelling the the environmental clearance granted to Adani's port in Hazira, Surat. In 2016, the NGT had set aside the 2013 environmental clearance of the port following a petition against Adani Hazira Port Pvt Ltd by fishermen group — Hazira Macchimar Samiti. The Samiti had alleged before NGT that the port developer had commenced construction work in 2010, reclaiming port backup area and constructing berths without transfer of environmental clearance or seeking fresh Coastal Regulation Zone permission. The Adani Hazira Port had filed an appeal against the order in Supreme Court, which set aside the NGT direction in its order dated April 23, 2018. "The counsel for the parties state that the matter has been settled for the satisfaction of the fishermen who have also been paid adequate compensation. We are also informed that mangroves have been planted at some other place. In view thereof, since the ...

Coastal Regulation Zone relaxation adds to woes of fisherfolk 25.4.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
The Akhil Maharashtra Machhimar Kriti Samiti on Wednesday raised a slew of issues that they said were not just threatening their livelihood but also their existence. These included the use of LED and pursing nets by trawlers that were leading to the fishes disappearing from the sea. Besides this, the latest on the list of worries of the fisherfolk is the recent CRZ relaxation which they claim will end up helping builders capture their lands. "Due to a number of trawlers and pursing nets, the fishes have disappeared from the sea bed for the past four months. These trawlers use LED lights when they come to fish at night. The lights are flashed on the water allowing the fish to gather at one spot and then the pursing nets capture them, leaving no fish in the sea," said Damodar Tandel, president of the Samiti in a press conference at Cuffe Parade. Due to this, Tandel said that for the past four months most of the fishermen have had nothing at hand despite going to sea. They have to stay at home because ...

Greens see red in draft coastal rules; Goa shack owners happy 22.4.2018 General News
The Centre's new draft rules governing the country"s coastline have evoked a mixed reaction in Goa where environmentalists expressed concern over the norms while shack owners said their business will get a boost. Early this week, the environment ministry issued the draft Coastal Zone Regulation (CRZ) Notification, 2018. The notification, which proposes expanding land area for development activities and tourism infrastructure while also simplifying the procedure for CRZ clearances, has been uploaded on the ministry"s website for public comments. It has classified areas with a population density of more than 2,161 per sq km as per 2011 Census as CRZ-III. In such areas, 'no development zone (NDZ)' - measured from the high tide line on the landward side - has been reduced to 50 metres from the existing 200 metres from the HTL. In areas with a population density of less than 2,161 per sq kms, designated as CRZ-III B, the NDZ continues to be 200 metres from the high tide line ..

Draft CRZ rules: Opening fragile coastal areas for real estate will affect ecology, fishing, says experts 22.4.2018 General News
Opening fragile inter-tidal areas for real estate and infrastructure development would have a huge bearing on coastal ecology and livelihood from fishing, researchers said after the Environment Ministry came out with a new draft for coastal regulations. The draft Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) Notification, 2018, proposes expanding land area for development activities and tourism infrastructure, while simplifying the procedure for CRZ clearances. Taking a critical view of the proposed rules, experts said there are two sets of problems with the new draft -- the process used for framing it and how it opens up coastal spaces for infrastructure development. The draft notification is on the ministry's website and comments have been sought from the public within 60 days. The recently uploaded draft has evidently been drafted by "Delhi-based babus" who are "uneducated" about the sea and have never experienced its violent energy, Chennai-based writer and social activist Nityanand Jayaraman, ...
