Description

On December 12, 2018, the Inspection Panel received a second Request for Inspection of the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Project for Low Income States (RWSSP) in India, and registered the Request on December 18, 2018. The Panel had registered a first Request for the same project on November 5, 2018 (Case No. 128). Since both Requests raise similar issues relating to the same project, the Panel is processing them jointly. In the second Request, complainants expressed concern about the construction of an elevated storage reservoir (ESR) in their village as part of the Chhotagovindpur water supply scheme financed under the RWSSP. They claim the ESR is being built on their community land, which has historical and cultural significance to Santhali and Ho tribal members. They allege they will be impoverished by having to pay for water that is currently available for free, and express concern over the environmental impact of the water-supply scheme and insufficient environmental and social assessment. The Requesters also claim lack of consultation and information disclosure in local languages, and raise concerns about retaliation.
