CSE released its cover story on the rapid industrialisation in Chhattisgarh on November 15, 2010 at Raipur, Chhattisgarh. The event was organised by Ekta Parishad. The cover was based on a detailed analysis of the proposed industries in the state, their land and water requirement and whether that state will be able to meet this requirement.
The analysis brought to fore important aspects like over exploitation of waters of River Mahanadi, the formality called public hearing, land acquisiton mechanism in the state, case studies, etc. The analysis brings out the need for a cumulative impact assessment of all the industries in the state and a carrying capacity of districts.
