Con­tentious ter­ri­tory

Down to Earth - - LETTERS - ADITI SACHDEVA Ac­count Man­ager, Red­if­fu­sion/edel­man (Im­age con­sul­tant for Tata Hous­ing Ltd)

This is with ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle "City on trial" (July 1-15, 2014). There were a few in­ac­cu­ra­cies which we wish to clar­ify through the fol­low­ing points: In the first para­graph on p20, it is clearly men­tioned that the Tata Camelot project site is 123 me­tres away from the Sukhna Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary, but the project lo­ca­tion in the map on p18 is shown to be touch­ing the sanc­tu­ary. A map to scale must cor­rectly de­pict the im­por­tant dis­tance. In the third para­graph on p20, it is men­tioned that while ob­tain­ing en­vi­ron­ment clear­ance, Tata Hous­ing Ltd had given a wrong rep­re­sen­ta­tion that there is no wa­ter body within a 10 km ra­dius of the project site. This is in­cor­rect. In the same para­graph, it is also men­tioned that the project land falls in the catch­ment area. The state­ment is false as the is­sue is cur­rently be­fore court. We would like to state that to de­cide whether the project land is part of the catch­ment area or not, the Supreme Court, in its or­der of April 22, 2014, had sent the mat­ter to the Delhi High Court. Your read­ers de­serve to know the truth and your support in this mat­ter is es­sen­tial. We re­quest you to clar­ify the above men­tioned points.
