Conflicts over land in India stall projects worth billions of dollars - report


MUMBAI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Conflicts related to land and resources are the main reason behind stalled industrial and development projects in India, affecting millions of people and putting billions of dollars of investment and the economy's health at risk, two reports said.

An analysis of 289 ongoing cases, which make up about 40 percent of major land conflicts, found they affected 3.1 million people and more than 12 trillion rupees ($178 billion), a report by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai said.

Land is increasingly sought in India for industrial use and development projects, as one of the world's fastest growing major economies expands.

While legislation such as a 2006 forest rights law and a 1996 act on tribal areas aims to protect the rights of farmers and indigenous communities over their lands, the laws are usually diluted and poorly implemented, activists say.

"The only way to ensure India's continued development will be to effectively implement the laws and remove the anomalies in property-rights regimes," said Geetanjoy Sahu, a professor at TISS and one of the report's authors.

Many cases end up in court. Matters related to land and property make up about two-thirds of all civil cases in India, according to a recent study by Bengaluru-based legal advocacy group Daksh.


The study by TISS found that most conflicts relate to infrastructure and industrial projects, with infrastructure accounting for almost half the disputes.

More than 40 percent of all land-related conflicts involve forest lands, with acquisitions by the government being the major cause of conflict in 60 percent of all reported cases.

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court said land acquired by West Bengal for a Tata Motors factory must be returned to farmers, ending a decade-long battle.

There have been violent clashes in Jharkhand in recent months over land acquisitions and proposed changes to land laws in the state.

"Without clarity on land and forest rights, competing claims between communities and the government will continue to fuel conflict and put India's socioeconomic future at risk," said the TISS study.

A second study by the Rights and Resources Initiative and the Indian School of Business shows that at least 14 percent of more than 40,000 projects announced between January 2000 and October 2016 were stalled due to disputes over land acquisition.

When it comes to high-value projects, the figure is higher, at a fourth. Power projects were the worst affected, followed by cement, steel and mining, the report said.

The main reasons for disputes are loss of common lands - which communities use for farming, fishing, livestock rearing, and grazing; dissatisfaction with compensation amounts, and concern over environmental impact, the report said.

India to ratify the Paris Climate Change agreement


India to ratify the Paris Climate Change agreement on October 2, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday in a sudden announcement that will give momentum to implementation of measures at international level to control global warming.

During the Paris climate meet in December last, more than 190 nations had agreed on setting ambitious goals for capping global warming and funnelling trillions of dollars to poor countries facing climate catastrophe.

The pact will come into force after it is ratified by at least 55 countries that account for 55 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

By ratifying now, India gets a seat at the 55/55 conference - when 55 countries with 55% emissions ratify the agreement, the countries set up a conference that is to change rules of the game. This is different from earlier days when India has been late to the party, then spent years trying to gain entry.

Its an indicator on how India wants to present itself as a responsible global power, India  has announced it will review the Indus Waters Treaty therefore Paris climate change agreement is important in this regard.

While Western countries, including the US, had been supporting an early ratification of the pact, India had been seeking more time to complete its national processes as it fears that any hasty decision may impact its developmental projects.

Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between IWAI and IPGPL on the Kaladan Multimodal Transit Transport Project


New Delhi, June 20, 2016:  The Kaladan Multimodal Transit Transport Project (KMTTP) in Myanmar was conceptualized and is being administered by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) with a view to facilitate connectivity between the mainland and the North Eastern States of the country through maritime shipping, inland waterways and roads of Myanmar. The link between North Eastern States of India and Myanmar will pave the way for enhanced trade & commerce across the border and enable cultural and social integration at the regional level. MEA had appointed Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) as the Project Development Consultant (PDC) for the implementation of the Port & Inland Water Transport (IWT) component of the Kaladan Project on 19.3.2009 and by Supplementary Agreement dated 28.4.2016.

India Ports Global Private Limited (IPGPL) has been established as a Joint Venture between Kandla Port Trust and Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust for the purpose of development of ports overseas. IPGPL was asked to partner IWAI in the Kaladan project as a sub-PDC. This was suggested mainly to use and develop the capabilities of IPGPL which has been created for a specialized purpose, completing the implementation of Kaladan project within the scheduled timeframe of April 2019 and to provide relief to IWAI whose responsibilities have increased manifold due to declaration of 106 new National Waterways and implementing the ambitious ‘Jal Marg Vikas” project.

Accordingly, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between IWAI and IPGPL on 1.6.2016 for implementation of the following three additional works, which are independent of the on-going works and are estimated to cost Rs.476 crore.

(i) Container handling facilities at Sittwe & Paletwa

(ii) Operation & Maintenance of the completed works

(iii) Wrecks removed in Sittwe Port basin area

IWAI shall remain as the overall PDC to MEA for implementation of PORT & IWT component of Kaladan project.
