MUMBAI: Even as Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi had raised his voice against undue favours extended to the Adani group, it has transpired that the UPA government had quietly cleared a proposal for allotment of 25 hectares of protected forest land for laying transmission lines from Tiroda to Warora in the Vidarbha region.

A senior bureaucrat said that following a proposal submitted by the principal chief conservator of forest on December 12, 2011, the state government had knocked on the doors of the ministry of environment and forest on January 27, 2012 for allotment of forest land to the Adani power Maharashtra Ltd. "The Adani group was given principle approval by the Centre on June 22, 2012. Then certain conditions were laid down.On complying with the conditions, a final order for al lotment of land was issued on August 19, 2014," he said.

The Adani group, after it was allotted nearly 382 hectares of land by the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation in Gondia, the home town of senior NCP leader Praful Patel, had set up 1,980MW power plant at the cost of Rs 8,000 crore.

"No rules were flouted, land was allotted to the Adani group in keeping with existing guidelines and procedure," he said.

The group had approached the state forest department for allotment of adequate land for laying transmission lines in Nagpur, Wardha, Bhandara, Gondia and Chandrapur dis tricts. "The actual transmission line will be between Tiroda and Warora, but it will pass through these areas," he said.

On the basis of the recommendations of the principal chief conservator, the proposal was submitted to the Centre on January 27, 2012 and the final approval was given on June 22, 2012.

"We feel the new transmission line from Tiroda to Warora will strengthen the transmission system in Maharashtra and as such, it was for the benefit of the general public. It's a project of public importance," the bureaucrat said. Stating the Adanis have complied with all the conditions prescribed by the Centre, the bureaucrat said it had been made mandatory for the firm to publish the entire order of forest clearances granted in verbatim, along with the details of the land surveys and legal status of each survey etc."Government is keen on complete transparency in allotment of forest land." he said.
