Lavasa: HC wants all litigation to be clubbed together
The High Court will now look into issues such as displacements of people and rehabilitation plans, and the effect of the 25,000-acre project on water supply to Pune, near which the troubled hill station is located. It will also look into various public interest litigation ( PIL )) alleging that the state government has favoured Lavasa.
Hearing will resume on Wednesday, while the environment ministry will now give Hindustan Construction Company’s subsidiary Lavasa a hearing on Thursday instead of Wednesday as decided earlier. It has asked the authority to visit the site before passing its final order, which it has to do by December 31.
After hearing Lavasa and non-governmental organisation National Alliance of People’s Movement or NAPM as directed by the court on December 14, the ministry has maintained its stance that the project has violated environmental norms.
