Resettlement Sites of Narmada Valley Project

This paper analyses survey data from three resettlement sites of the Sardar Sarovar Project, and highlights the drawbacks of an official-led resettlement plan and of excluding the project-affected from the planning process. It also discovers that an experimental 'voluntary resettlement' scheme where the displaced are consulted about their preferences finds enough favour with the latter for it to be considered an alternative approach. From this perspective, it is important to consider a change in policy and attitude towards resettlement connected with all such projects around the world.
