Abstract: "At issue is the permission granted by the Chhattisgarh government (GoC) to Jindal Strips Limited, now called Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL), to extract water through a combination of stop dams and intake wells from the Kelo, downstream of Raigarh town. According to the local population and activists, fourteen villages of Raigarh district in Chhattisgarh and nine villages in Orissa are affected, causing loss of livelihood, pollution of drinking water and increased drudgery for women. A writ petition against JSPL has been filed in the High Court of Chhattisgarh."
