Five port projects in Orissa opposed

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the MoEF have objected to five proposed port projects in Orissa.

DRDO has opposed the plan of setting up port projects at Inchudi, Chandipur and Bahabalpur (all three in Balasore district) and raised objection on the proposed port at Chudamani in Bhadrak district after the state government signed an MoU with the Aditya Birla group for a captive port.

Also, the MoEF has raised objection to the proposed port at Barunai Muhan in Kendrapara district, as the place was close to Gahirmatha beach, the nesting site of Olive Ridley Turtles.
