Aranmula Project promoters KGS Group has given a new application to Union environmental ministry, seeking environmental sanction to build airport at Aranmula in Pathanamthitta district.
The ministry will consider the application on July 29. The stand taken by the State government then will be decisive. Former UDF government had taken a favourable stand towards Aranmula project.
In May last year, the Central government had cancelled the permission for the project. The Supreme Court had upheld the National Green Tribunal order cancelling the nod given the Union ministry on November 18, 2013.
The Supreme Court cancelled the order after making the observation that the agency Enviro care that had taken up the environmental impact study in Aranmula didn’t have the credentials to conduct the study. Maurice Richard Womens JerseyShare This
