Hyderabad:  The Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) under the Ministry of Environment and Forests has turned down a request by the GMR Group to extend the validity for preparing terms of reference for a hydel power project being set up in Arunachal Pradesh.  The EAC while refusing to extend the validity of the terms of reference (ToR) also suggested the company to hold public meeting before August 2014.  “The EAC noted that the extension of the ToR validity is up to August 9, 2014, and there are no convincing reasons to consider the case for extension of the validity of ToR for the project at this stage. “ A senior official of GMR said they are now gearing up to participate in the public hearing within the expiry of the validity of ToR.
