An expert panel of the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has refused to give clearance to KSK group's hydropower project in Arunachal Pradesh on June 27, according to sources in the ministry. The project of 420 MW capacity is proposed on the Kameng river, a major tributary of Brahmaputra; its proponent is Hyderabad-based KSK group. The committee suggested the company relocate the project to another site as it is too close to the Pakke Tiger Reserve and the Nameri National Park.
