not assure that the displaced population got a just rehabilitation as required by law. There are many other dimensions of the impacts of the project. For example, the 150-km stretch of the Narmada downstream from the dam is now dry most of the year and the claim of 600 cusecs (cubic feet per second) being released not immediately downstream but several kilometres from the dam is not supported by any clinching evidence. In any case, that quantum was not the result of any participatory assessment, and is not sufficient to stop even salinity ingress, as was seen in the last several years. The livelihood of at least 10,000 families depending on the Narmada estuary stands destroyed, without any one talking about any rehabilitation or compensation. Similarly, there is no rehabilitation for all the other categories of people displaced by the dam. There are various benefits of the projects such as- nearly 18.45 lakh hectares of land are projected to be irrigated in Gujarat a very large area by any standards. Besides, 2.46 lakh hectares in Rajasthan will be also irrigated. This will increase agricultural production to the tune of about 87 lakh tonnes per annum. Then, there is an installed hydropower capacity of 1,450 MW, which would be generating about 100 crore units of electricity per year. Drinking water will be provided to 9,500 villages, 173 towns of Gujarat and 124 villages of Rajasthan. The project will provide flood protection to an area of about 30,000 hectares which is prone to the fury of floods. And about a million jobs will be created mostly in rural areas as a result of the project.

In addition, there are benefits to the environment. The Shoolpaneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary area is going to increase from 150 square kilometres to 607 square kilometres. Environment safeguards have been put in place. Trees are being planted. A total of 76.1 million tree saplings have been planted; for every tree submerged, 92 are being planted. About 4,650 hectares are marked for compulsory afforestation. BILATERAL 21. What are the Issues concerning the India Myanmar bilateral relations? Prime Minister Narendra Modi’svisit is taking place amidst some of the worst violence involving Rohingya militants and the Myanmar security forces ever resulting in a full-fledged international crisis triggered by large-scale, coordinated attacks by Rohingya militants under a recently formed Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA, now designated as ‘terrorists’) against government and security outposts in northern Rakhine .The Modi government has unequivocally condemned the “terrorist” attacks at a time when the security forces and Ms. SuuKyi herself face heightened international criticism on the handling of the issue. This is likely to resonate in Mr. Modi’sfavour in Myanmar.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
