“In its ruling of 27 February 2015, the Tribunal labelled the case a “classic example of civil action brought by traditional fishermen” living in koliwadas (habitats of the Koli fishermen of Maharashtra), who were seeking compensation under Section 15 of the National Green Tribunal Act, 2010, for loss of livelihood due to project activities of the Respondents, as well as implementation of rehabilitation of their families, who are unsettled on account of the projects in question” writes The Samundra Report.
