The interested party is Reliance-Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (R-ADAG) not Mukesh Ambani's!! Modi is close to the latter!!

if mc road is widened then people can reach nedumbassery within 2 hr..

You wont reach even Alapuzha in 2 hours from Chengannur at the present condition of our roads. And to reach CIAL will be even harder. Our system is age old and don't know if ''SARITA'' can Help the ''HARITHA'' tribunal.

Now the ball is in Modi's Court, he and his team will make or break the news.

Kerala lost another chance to gain a Huge development in Pathanamthitta Dist. My travel is sure for TVM from now on even if its $ 20 higher per ticket, as CIAL takes 4 Hours to reach even very early in the morning. So flying to UK, USA is like very very long journey.

Not sure Modi will support this as he has the full backing of the religious leaders, my best hope is if he decides to make a decision to build it any where else in Pathanamthitta Dist then the NRI's NRK's would sure benefit from it.


My best guess is its Not happening, even if the company went for appeal they sure wont win. But if Modi is looking for developments in Kerala then he can make it happen as a regional Airport with a change of plan in runway length 2500-2800 Mts Runway, which is enough for any major airlines operating in and out of Kerala Airports.

i mean for such development a basic facility is road... why no one is bothering about the road development there which will be useful for whole kerala

OC or maani is from there and still 3 one way bridge exists in one of the most important road in kerala

instead of developing such basic facility the oc govt is focusing on airport development which helps only a few that also immediate attention not needed

that may point out the vadras involvement

CIAL was Created by destroying Acres of Paddy fields, but then people around 100 KMs started to benefit from it. And Roads came later. Aranmula was different the Nearest M.C.Road is 10 Miles away in Chengannur or 15 Km away in Pandalam side. There is no way the Roads are going to be widened in the congested towns. Even before or after ''airport'' comes there.

You pointed out Airport only helps a few, Ofcourse every facility has its own purpose. K.S.R.T.C Bus stand serves its Customers and so does the Railway, Sea port, Airport etc.

Modi is the only way forward, Development is inevitable in our region. Narmada Dam had many problems, so does any other projects. Any way they were not building a NUCLEAR Reactor in Aranmula.

'Aranmula Report Was Cut, Paste Job'

Quote:
CHENNAI: Was it actually a factory or an airport? It seems the officials and the ‘experts’ got even the basics wrong with the Aranmula Airport when granting clearance to the controversial project.

It was such silly mistakes apparently caused by ‘copy and paste’ practice, which is so common among agencies conducting environment impact assessments, that has finally cost the `2,000-crore project which the National Green Tribunal (NGT) halted on Wednesday.

In its 221-page judgment, the southern Bench of the NGT, consisting of Justice M Chockalingam and R Nagendran, highlighted several such silly mistakes in the environment impact assessment (EIA) reports, prepared by a private agency, and the Environment Clearance document prepared by the Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) of the Union Environment and Forest Ministry.

For instance, the judgment has quoted paragraph 4.4.8 of the EIA report, prepared by Madurai-based Enviro Care. “Elaborate green belt and afforestation will be developed along peripheral and other vacant portions of the factory premises, which will considerably enhance the floristic density in the area.”

The judgment further notes that the proposed airport was mentioned as ‘plant, plant site, plant building, plant operators’ in at least five places in the EIA report doubting whether “The EAC had in its mind a plant or a factory instead of an airport project while considering the EIA.”

The report even suggested the ‘factory’ can reduce the waste by ‘better technology’. The report did not discuss about the passengers travelling to and fro the airport, but only ‘raw materials.’

The judgment quoted the report thus: “The increase in traffic density due to transport of raw materials and products will be low by means of lorries and truckers.”

“No doubt, all the above are out of context and irrelevant and made without any application of mind. Probably, the same might be a verbatim copy of some other report for a factory or plant,” read the judgment.

It was not just the private agency that was rapped by the tribunal for the ‘copy and paste’ practice. The Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) of the Union Environment and Forest Ministry, consisting of experts drawn from various fields, was also equally criticised by the tribunal for ‘lack of application of mind.’

In the Environment Clearance document, the EAC, while setting conditions about effluents from the airport, unwittingly mentioned that the effluent shall conform to the standards of the Uttar Pradesh State Pollution Control Board. “We find it difficult to see the relationship between the project in question and the Uttar Pradesh State Pollution Control Board. In our opinion, the officials responsible for making a blunder as above owe an explanation to their own selves,” the judgment notes.

“We are of the considered view that the ‘conditions’ cited above are typical examples of the (in)famous ‘copy and paste’ from the list of conditions appended to the EC of some other project(s), without any application of mind and ‘non-verification’ of the document before placing the same for signature by the authorised signatory. We direct the MoEF to take steps to restore the sanctity of important documents such as the EC,” the tribunal noted.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India has indicted the state government and the promoters of the Rs 2,000 crore KGS Aranmula International Airport Ltd, recommending an independent inquiry into cases of violation of provisions and lapses that have occurred at all levels "including that of the Secretariat departments which supported the illegal acts of individuals and the company."

The CAG has recommended an in-depth study on the impact of the project on the "ecology and environment in Aranmula on the basis of reports submitted by the report of legislature committee on environment, Kerala State Biodiversity Board and the Expert Appraisal committee of Airport Authority of India (AAI)."Questioning the need for a fifth airport in a small state like Kerala and that too in an ecologically sensitive area like Aranmula, the CAG said the issue needs to be studied in detail, especially as the airport would be situated within 150 kilometers from both Thiruvananthapuram and Kochi international airports.

TOI, in a series of reports, had highlighted the issue based on AAI and customs documents. The CAG, too, quoting AAI's expert committee observed that the temple mast of the ancient Aranmula Parthasarathy temple, situated 905 meters away from the proposed runway, is 30.8 meters high. "But the permissible elevation is 23.7 meters. The four hills in the vicinity have a height of 98 meters, 74 meters, 70 meters and 99.3 meters. Permissible heights at such distance are 31.7 meters, 46.4 meters, 53.2 meters and 56.8 meters respectively and need to be removed," the CAG said.

The CAG said environmental clearance was obtained through submission of false documents using pleas that reclamation of paddy land was during 2008, but the fact is that Kerala Land Utilization Act, 1967 prevents paddy land to be converted to any other purpose other than cultivation.

I mentioned this once before..there is Mukhesh Ambani's RIL "Reliance Industries" and Anil Ambani's "Reliance ADAG"....

RIL has been close to BJP but Reliance ADAG were once very close (they downplay it now) to the Indian National Congress. This was imperative as bulk of their revenue came from the Telecom sector which was where the previous ruling alliance had their focus. We all know how that ended!! This airport was supposed to come up in partnership with Reliance ADAG and not RIL....
