The ambitious Rs 3,600-crore Renuka Dam project in Sirmaur district, which aims at quenching the thirst of Delhi, has crossed a major hurdle with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) giving a go-ahead to HPPCL to award compensation to those whose land has been acquired for it, a project official said today. The principal bench of NGT, a judicial body for hearing environment-related cases, on Tuesday vacated its interim stay for awarding compensation in lieu of acquisition of private land for the project, to be constructed on a tributary of the Yamuna River in Sirmaur district, some 250 km from Delhi.
