Plachimada Solidarity Committee’s plea to form statutory authority [India]

The Plachimada Solidarity Committee has demanded formation of a statutory authority to initiate prosecution measures against the Hindustan Coca-Cola Company for the environmental and other damages caused by its unit at Plachimada...Raising doubts about the efficacy of a 11-member high power committee constituted by the State government...committee convener R. Ajayan said...though the committee had set October 9 as the deadline for submission of compensation petitions...there was no clarity about the counts on which people could seek compensation...[but] The Environment (Protection) Act had a clear provision for constituting a statutory authority which would have the powers to arrive at final decisions and enforce them
