Reason behind encroachment removal

About 200 families who were living in the dam's restricted area had to be moved, as per an order from the National Green Tribunal (NGT). Since the encroachers' settlement was approaching the submergence area, the local government had given them till Tuesday to relocate.

Before agreeing to move, the slum inhabitants want rehabilitation from the administration, while the administration argues that the impacted families have been given options through the PM Housing For All (HFA) program.
