Industrial Development and Displacement

The People of Korba

by Vasudha Dhagamwar, Subrata De, Nikhil Verma

This significant book is based on intensive fieldwork in Korba, a little known multi-project industrial area in Chhattisgarh. It describes the impact of piecemeal industrial development, and its consequent environmental degradation on the lives of the original inhabitants of the region.

This timely and thought-provoking book about the impact of multiple industrial projects on the environment and on the lives of the local people questions the concept of ‘development’ that benefits a few at the cost of many.
