The Supreme Court on May 9 canceled the clearance given by the National Board for Wildlife (NBWL) to the doubling of the railway track between Tinaighat-Castle Rock in Karnataka and Kulem in Goa.
CEC had recommended revoking permission for the railway expansion project, but said the highway expansion could be allowed subject to modifications like expansion of animal corridors and elevated highways in places where animal crossings are frequent.
A bench presided by Justice L Nageswara Rao accepted the recommendations of the SC-appointed Central Empowered Committee (CEC) which in its report dated April

23, 2021 said “that it does not find any justification for the track as it “will destroy the fragile ecosystem of the Western Ghats which is an internationally recognised Biodiversity hotspot and also one of the most important wildlife corridor of the country” and that it “will only be marginally enhancing the capacity of the most inefficient section of the railway network passing through ecologically sensitive and biodiversity rich tiger reserve, two wildlife sanctuaries and a national park”.
The railway line is proposed to pass through 120.8 hectares of protected area in the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary in Goa and 10.4 hectares in Karnataka’s Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary. The ruling is based on the recommendations of a Central Empowered Committee (CEC) that the SC had appointed in September 2020 on this contentious matter after NGO Goa Foundation filed a petition seeking scrapping of the project. The court, however, has allowed the South Western Railway to reapply for clearance.
The order came on a plea by the NGO Goa Foundation.
The Standing Committee of the NBWL had cleared three projects — the doubling of the railway track, the four-laning of the NH 4A from Anmod near the Goa-Karnataka border to Mollem and laying of a 400 kv transmission line from Sangod in Goa to the Karnataka border to help meet Goa’s peak electricity demand of 1192 MW by 2022.
The CEC had recommended revoking permission for the railway expansion project, but said the highway expansion could be allowed subject to modifications like expansion of animal corridors and elevated highways in places where animal crossings are frequent.
With regard to the transmission line, the CEC suggested that the existing 220 KV powerline alignment be utilised to lay a new 400 KV line instead of cutting down fresh forest cover.

A slope train conceptualized, designed, and operated as a unique experience at Wildernest Nature Resort, Chorla Ghats was inaugurated by Shri PratapsinghRaoji Rane, Hon. Ex-CM of Goa.

This is the first of its kind project to be implemented in India and an exclusive experience of viewing the Western Ghats of India through the tree canopy.

Capt. Nitin Dhond, Managing Director, Swapnagandha Resorts Pvt Ltd, whose brainchild this is, opined that this model can be replicated across Goa as well as India to solve forest access issues as well as provide forest canopy views for eco-tourists without disturbing the habitats. Capt. Dhond also thanked the design, logistics and mechanical teams for their hard work and grit to complete this project in record time.

All the team heads that contributed to the project were honored with a shawl and a memento By Shri Rane.

The Chief Guest on the occasion, Shri Rane, emphasized the need for a long-term vision on hinterland-based tourism and applauded the Wildernest management for establishing the twin resorts Wildernest and Swapnagandha in the Chorla Ghats area of the Western Ghats.

He traveled on the train twice to soak in the experience along with senior Director Baba Dhond and shared his experiences from his travels in the landscape with all those present.

Shri Kiran Thakur in his Vote of Thanks, thanked Shri Rane for his abundant support and guidance for all social and path-breaking work in the region and praised the team at Rachana Infotech for steering this project into operations in these tough times. He said that this concept can further be utilized in areas that are inaccessible by roads or are insensitive forest habitats across the country.

This one-of-a-kind project has been constructed and installed by Rachana Infotech, Belagavi and is the first ingenuously designed operational slope train in India.

This slope train covers a distance of approximately 110 meters through the forest canopy and provides a 360 view of the magnificent VazraSakla falls on one side and the Mhadei wildlife sanctuary on the other. This forest is part of an Important Bird Area. Lesser-known wildlife like the Slender Loris and the Great Pied hornbill too are part of this unique landscape and sightings at dawn and dusk are common.

Sunsets are beautiful and extravagant here and one can view the city of Panaji and the fabled Arabian sea from the highest point of the slope train.

Modi is expected to laud the efforts of the health care workers
Two days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to interact with Goan politicians, health workers and members of the public via video conference, Congress in Goa has demanded justice from the PM over the Mahadayi issue.
Addressing a press conference in Panaji on Thursday, state Congress president Girish Chodankar also said that the Prime Minister should scrap the three road, rail and power projects along the Goa-Karnataka border, which the Congress official said were being carried out in order to

develop the state into a corridor to transport coal to Karnataka's steel mills. 
"BJP leaders have compromised our mother Mahadayi and sold it to Karnataka for political purposes. The damage to Goa because of this compromise is irreversible. It will cause immeasurable hardship to Goans in the years to come. PM should give justice to Goa on this issue," Chodankar said.

The Opposition in Goa has accused successive ruling the state BJP of colluding with Karnataka and "selling the interests of the state" over the long-standing inter-state dispute over the waters of the Mahadayi river.  
"We urge the Prime Minister when you interact with the people of Goa, announce that Goa will not be a coal hub and Goa will be rid of coal dust," Chodankar said, adding that the projects were not beneficial to Goa or the state's local residents in any manner. 
Modi's virtual interaction has been scheduled after Chief Minister Pramod Sawant claimed that the state had achieved 102 per cent coverage of the first dose of Covid vaccination. Modi is expected to laud the efforts of the health care workers, the state's administrative machinery, local politicians and the members of the public for achieving the feat.   
"Goa is being turned into a coal hub for Modi's friends in Delhi and Gujarat. Goans have no takeaway or benefit from these projects. Coal is already getting seeped into the health of Goans making them sicker," the state Congress president also said. 
The three projects include rail track expansion by the South Western Railway from Castlerock railway station in Karnataka to Tinaighat railway station in Goa, the National Highway - 4 four-laning and drawing of a power line. All three projects run through the protected forest areas in both Goa and Karnataka territories which are a part of the UNESCO-endorsed Western Ghat region.
50,000 trees in and around Mollem, a village located along the Goa-Karnataka border, have been slotted for felling to make way for the three government projects, which have been cleared by the state and the central government's Ministry for Environment and Forests.  
Activists, as well as opposition politicians in Goa, have been demanding a review of the three projects, claiming that they were hurriedly granted permission during the pandemic, without due diligence.
Opponents of the projects had alleged that the doubling tracking of railway tracks and expansion of the National Highway 4 would lead to increased transportation of coal imported to the Mormugao Port Trust in South Goa to steel mills in Karnataka's Bellary region.
Congress has already announced that if the party comes to power in the 2022 state assembly polls, it would scrap the three projects immediately.
