Public hearing minutes of Adani’s proposed ship recycling facility at Mundra

The public hearing for Adani’s ship-breaking facility near Mundra West Port in Gujarat’s Kuchchh district ended without the company being able to give comprehensive answers to the queries raised by the project-affected people. Gautam Adani-led Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZL) was formerly known as Mundra Port and Special Economic Zone (SEZ).

The public hearing for the project started at around 11.30 am and continued till 6.30 pm on July 29. People from four project-affected villages and nearby locations who attended the public hearing at Tunda village in Mundra taluka posed dozens of questions about the project and its impact on the environment. But most of them were disappointed with the kind of answers the company gave.
