The Supreme Court of India (“Supreme Court”) has revoked the approval granted by the Standing Committee of National Board for Wildlife (“NBWL”) for doubling of the railway line between Castlerock (Karnataka) and Kulem (Goa), which passes through the ecologically sensitive Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary in Western Ghats. The Court noted that the landscape through which the railway line is proposed to pass is an important tiger corridor, connecting the States of Goa, Karnataka and Maharashtra. It is necessary that there should be a detailed study and analysis of the impact of the
proposed project on the biodiversity and ecological system of this area. Any further construction might invite a disaster in the sensitive areas of Western Ghats. The opinion of National Tiger Conservation Authority is also crucial in this matter.
