Brutanga Irrigation Project Gets Final Forest Clearance


According to an official press statement from the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), the Union Ministry of Environment, Forests, and Climate Change has granted the go-ahead for the long-awaited Brutanga irrigation project in Nayagarh district to use forest land for non-forest uses. It was noteworthy that the project’s forest removal had been 30 years overdue. Following approval, this project will benefit the district’s farmers and prove to be beneficial for agriculture.

The irrigation project on 1524.17 hectares of forest land has been approved by the Center. This allows for the initiation of the 23,000 acre Brutanga irrigation project. It is important to note that during his recent visit to New Delhi, Chief Minister Mohan Charan Majhi held a discussion on the issue with the Union Minister of Forests and Environment.

The Union Minister of Forests and Environment and the Prime Minister have been thanked by the Chief Minister for their approval. In addition to adhering to other regulations, compensatory afforestation will be implemented in non-forest areas for this reason.
