PANCHTHAR, Nov 1: Nearly 150 households living close to the Tamor River are going to be displaced due to the 762-Megawatt Tamor Hydroelectricity Project.
The Majhi and some Tamang community households at Pinasighat, Majhitar, Nakkaleyghat and Lubughat area will face displacement due to the reservoir-type project, it is stated. These settlements will be submerged after the construction of the reservoir for the project.
