The Kevadia Colony, Narmada valley, Gujarat is the site of the Sardar Sarovar Dam. While over 250,000 oustees still await rehabilitation and compensation, a fresh set of displacement is being triggered off; this time for a huge tourism project. For the people of Kevadia – after fighting the dam for so many decades there is a new foe to fight – tourism. EQUATIONS on the request of the Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) conducted an independent investigation in 2007 (& updated in 2009) into the promotion of tourism at the site of the Sardar Sarovar Dam Project. The government is using excess land acquired under “public purpose” as per the Land Acquisition Act for construction of tourism and entertainment facilities.
