Mandi, November 18

Nandan Thakur, Chief General Manager of NTPC Kol Dam project, said today that the company was committed to the development of affected villages. The project authorities were working for community development.

He said the rehabilitation and resettlement of people affected by the project was going on at speed. A total of 1,125 families had been affected in four districts of Bilaspur, Mandi, Shimla and Solan due to the Kol Dam Hydropower project.

"Of the affected families, 478 have been declared as without homeless, as per the certified list issued by the state authorities. To rehabilitate these families, six resettlement colonies with all infrastructure facilities like roads, streetlights, sewerage and drinking water have been constructed at Jamthal, Chamyon, Kasol, Kangoo, Sunni and Mundkhar in all four districts," he added.
