Vadhvan Bandar Virod bandarvirod started this petition to PRIME MINISTER INDIA and

The Vadhavan port project, estimated to cost Rs 65,544.54 crore, is part of the Centre’s Sagarmala initiative that aims to make Indian ports major contributors to the country’s GDP but  This port would have permanently destroyed the region’s natural resource base, which sustains the livelihoods of thousands of fishers, farmers and indigenous people. Dockers in Mumbai (Bombay) were also concerned about job losses.The Dahanu coast is the least disturbed part of India’s north-western coast and the port would have adversely affected both marine and terrestrial biodiversity in the area as well as undermined sustainable development in the region.

Dahanu taluka located 140 km from Mumbai is an Eco-sensitive zone. The DTEPA headed by retired high court judge C S Dharmadhikari was set up in 1996 to protect the ecologically fragile area. “Hon Chairman of the DTEPA has directed that JNPT should not proceed with the development of the port without obtaining necessary permission from the DTEPA,” says the directive delivered on May 30.
