Mangalore, 28 Aug 2013: The state forests, environment and Dakshina Kannada (DK) district-in-charge minister Ramanat Rai advised the project officers of A M R Power, in order to monitor the water levels especially during the monsoon, while increasing the height of existing dam that has been built across Netravati River at Samboor, in Bantwal taluk, in order avoid flooding in the farmlands and households that lies in the vicinity, advised minister Ramanath.

The minister Ramanath was speaking during the meeting of peoples representatives affected by A M R Power project, ZP members, the villages elders,  A M R Power deputy general manager Praveen, project advisor Sankappa Shetty, at Deputy Commissioner’s office here on Wednesday August 28.

Deputy Commissioner (DC) N Prakash said that A M R Power authorities are supposed to hand over a report of all activities that are taken for the welfare of local peasants.  A Committee will be formed of Tahsildar, PWD executive engineer, the officers of plantation department, agriculture department, water supply and drainage Board at the leadership of deputy sub-division officer, in order to assess the real situation in the periphery of A M R Power project, said DC Prakash.
