Description

The Teesta on The Run is a contribution to the debate on the development and displacement that is linked to it. Most decision-makers view development only as economic or GDP growth and building infrastructure and consider displacement linked to it sad but inevitable. On the other side those who want inclusive development hold that economic and social growth should go hand in hand and that one cannot be sacrificed for the other. The study on which this publication is based has examined the extent of land used for projects 1975-2010 and the number of displaced persons. It has also evaluated the impact on those who pay the price of development planning in India. One is left the impression that the GDP growth based view prevails in development planning in India.
