Is feasibility study for Kandi Road not contempt of court: NTCA to Wildlife Institute of India 13.8.2018 DNA: Money
The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) sought a clarification from the Wildlife Institute of India (WII), another environment ministry body, on how it is carrying out a feasibility study for the Kandi Road proposed through Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve despite the Supreme Court prohibiting that alignment in 2005. The NTCA pointed out that since both the SC and Uttarakhand High Court had passed orders against the current alignment, it might be a contempt of their orders. The WII, an autonomous body under the Environment Ministry, signed an MoU with National Buildings Construction Corporation to prepare a feasibility report on the Kandi Road project.

Currently, the project is also facing litigation in the National Green Tribunal and it had issued a show-cause notice to Uttarakhand government over its approval for the road.
