Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government is set to issue a new notification to pursue SilverLine project’s social impact study in the wake of expiry of the notification. It is learnt that the regime sought legal advice on how to go about the social impact study. Also K-Rail which is spearheading the project had approached the government to issue a fresh notification. The development comes in this context.

In most of the districts, the Social Impact Assessment (SIA) is incomplete. As per the law, if SIA is not completed within a fixed time limit, new SIA need to be conducted. However, if the data collected remains relevant, it can be used.

Earlier, when the regime was facing the heat of the protests, it informed the Kerala High Court that no large survey stones will be used for demarcation in the ongoing SIA and instead geo-tagging method will be deployed.

So the apparent plan is to continue the study by issuing new notification.
