Environmentalists against neutrino project

Poovulagin Nanbargal, an environmental group, has moved the National Green Tribunal's principal bench in New Delhi, challenging the environmental clearance granted to the neutrino observatory project in Theni district.

The appeal also sought direct penal action against members of the Expert Appraisal Committee (Infra-2) for acting beyond their jurisdiction and recommending the project for grant of EC in violation of the EIA notification, 2006. Besides, it sought a departmental inquiry against officers of the Environment Ministry for giving illegal directions to the EAC.
