K-Rail Inquiry Has Halted, Says Gov’t In Kerala HC – The New Indian Express

By Express press service

KOCHI: The state government informed the Kerala High Court on Friday that the social impact assessment of the SilverLine semi-high speed train project has been halted and that unless further notification is issued, no action in this regard will be taken.

The government made the submission when petitions against the SilverLine project were heard. Judge Devan Ramachandran said that obviously there is virtually nothing left in the motions in brief until a new notification is issued by the state government.

However, the court adjourned the case to August 26. The position of the central government and the railway board remains unchanged and neither the detailed project report nor permission to conduct an SIA has been approved or granted so far, the Centre’s lawyer said.
