Dr. Rampal


Abstract: Kol Dam Hydroelectric Project is one of the major historical projects of Himachal Pradesh which has been constructed between Harnora village, District Bilaspur and Kyan village, District Mandi. The project was identified in the 1960s when Himachal Pradesh was not a full - fledged state. To study the rehabilitation and resettlement works in the Kol Dam Hydroelectric Project, development works in the project affected area, environmental changes in the affected area due to construction and development, to understand the actual field conditions of the Kol Dam Hydroelectric Project, and the concepts of rehabilitation and resettlement. It is necessary. Development indicates a better standard of living of the individual, society and community, in which improvement in the quality of life and living of the entire society and nation is considered important rather than giving importance to any particular individual. Hydropower projects are built after identifying a specific area, which is an aspect of development projects due to which problems of displacement, rehabilitation and resettlement arise. Displacement is the result of development projects which demand resettlement and consider resettlement important for development. Development projects without proper rehabilitation and resettlement raise questions about development. Resettlement means resettlement of a person from one place to another as a result of construction and development of a project.
