Jamnagar District News Samachar – Poshitra Port

Environment Ministry opposes port at Poshitara Port Jamnagar.

Noting that the proposed port at Poshitra in Jamnagar would destroy crucial marine bio-diversity in the Gulf of Kutch, the Environment Ministry has asked the private developer to look for an alternate site to protect the precious aquatic life.

The Environment Ministry's Standing Committee for National Wildlife Board at its recent meeting also shot down Gujarat Government's proposal to conduct an environmental impact study of the upcoming project stating that a national-level study is already underway for such projects.

"The Minister observed that a study to assess the cumulative impact of all the forthcoming port projects on the Indian coastline is already underway.

"Hence, he was of the view that till the report is received, it would perhaps be not appropriate to consider this proposal.
