Independent People’s Tribunal on Dams,Environment and Displacement

Date: 01/02/2012

Document: IPT_Dams environment and displacement.pdf

Edited by Dr. Doma T. Bhutia
Rivers are an integral part of the Sikkimese ethos. Much of the folklore and traditions of the locals revolve around the mighty Teesta and the Rangeet Rivers. The River Teesta not only sustains the livelihood of the locals by preserving and propagating the rich bio-diversity, but also is the very backbone of Sikkim’s cultural heritage. The Independent People’s Tribunal gave opportunity to the departments concerned to respond to critical grievances raised by the farmers. The departments concerned like Forest Department, concerned power developers like Teesta Urja, NHPC and Secretaries of Home and Land Revenue Departments did not bother to respond to the queries raised by the affected people. Therefore, the findings of this IPT will reflect the real picture at the grassroots.
