Sardar Sarovar Project-Review of Resettlement and Rehabilitation in Maharashtra

Sardar Sarovar Project Review of Resettlement and Rehabilitation in Maharashtra THIS report summarises the findings of six years of work completed by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, in its capacity as the monitoring and evaluation (M and E) agency, for the Maharashtra submergence villages of the Sardar Sarovar Project. The Tata Institute of Social Sciences was appointed for this task by the government of Maharashtra as required by the terms of the contract with the World Bank. The report presents the team's perspectives on the rehabilitation of the displaced, based on the analysis of their own data (not influenced by the opinions of the Narmada Bachao Andolan or the government). These experiences have been documented in 19 reports, that have been circulated among the officials of the government of Maharashtra, the World Dank and other organisations related to the project. Reference is also made, for comparisons, to some findings of the Centre for Social Studies, Gujarat, the official M and E agency for the project affected villages in Gujarat. These have been incorporated for illustrative purposes so as to indicate the commonalities in the displaced persons' experiences across the two states. No claim is, however, made to summarise the Gujarat situation.
