Narmada dam construction restarts
News||15 March 1999|update 12|
Construction has restarted on the Sardar Sarovar (Narmada) dam, Western India, after a decision by the Supreme Court. This is a blow to the NBA peoples' movement which fought successfully to remove the World Bank from the project in 1993 and has since been trying to get the Court to accept that the dam is fundamentally flawed from an economics and human rights point of view.
