HC adjourns hearing on Sikkim's Tashiding hydel project

On the petition seeking scrapping of the 97 mw Tashiding Hydro Electric Project in Sikkim, the state High Court has adjourned the hearing for a month. The high court bench will take up the matter for further hearing after May 10.

The Division Bench comprising the Chief Justice Pius Chakkalayil Kuriakose and Justice SP Wangdi on April 10 noted that there was already an interim order of the court in force in relation with the seeking of the stay order after two petitioners pressed for a stay order on work on the project underway in West Sikkim.

The bench, which gave time to the state for submitting its views by May 10, also noted any work underway at the project site, if any, would be at the expense and risk of the project developer and the state would not be liable for such costs and expenditures incurred.

The counsel for the petitioners, Zangpo Sherpa earlier had placed additional documents before the court which included the report of the high powered committee constituted by the government for review and examination of the three hydel projects which were initially planned on the Rathong Chu namely Ting Ting, Lethang and Tashiding. Subsequently, Ting Ting and Lethang projects were scrapped.
