Won't stop Polavaram dam construction: AP rejects Odisha's request 20.10.2017
Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh government appears unwilling to acquiesce to Odisha's request that work  on construction of Polavaram multipurpose project be stopped forthwith till the latter's concerns were addressed. A minister has said the state government has all the required clearances for the multi-purpose irrigation project, accorded national project status by the Centre. "We have all the clearances and we will go ahead with the construction," Andhra Pradesh Water Resources Minister Devineni Umamaheswara Rao asserted.

In the letter, Patnaik said construction of Polavaram was ...

Puthanar eviction to hit 1,500 people 20.10.2017
Thiruvananthapuram: Not less than 1,500 people would have to be evicted from the banks of Parvathi Puthanar for realising the National Waterways (NW) project.  Though presently Rs 80 crore has been earmarked, the actual costs might exceed this, say irrigation officials.  The waterway stretches until Varkala tunnel before being connected to the existing 168-km Kollam-Kottapuram stretch linking southern and northern parts of the state opened early last year. A preliminary survey identified some 2,400 encroachments at Attipra, Pettah, Kadakampally and Muttathara wards in the city.  A Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) was floated in collaboration with Cochin International Airport Ltd to oversee the project. Additional land has to be acquired at Vallakkadavu and Edayar near Poonthura to maintain its width at 25 metres.   The irrigation officials expect a long legal battle as many of the alleged encroachers had title deeds. Those who will be ready to settle might get houses under the ...
