Land Conflict Summary

Adani Group built the world's largest solar power plant (as of 2016) in Kamuthi, located in Ramanathapuram district of Tamil Nadu, in record eight months. The project, however, initially met with opposition from locals citing loss of livelihood due to loss of agriculture land. 

Several farmers in Sengapadai, Pudukottai, M Karisalkulam, Mudhal Naadu and Kamudhi villages in Kamuthi taluk say they gave up their fertile lands for the project. A majority of these deals were signed by villagers accompanied by mediators for 'Kamuthi Solar Power Company Limited'. Officials, however, say that only barren lands were being acquired from individuals for the project. Revenue officials said that as of July 2015, 300 acres of land had been acquired in Kamuthi block by the Adani Green Energy (Tamil Nadu) Limited, but they were tightlipped about the price at which it was acquired.

Meanwhile, District Collector K Nandhakumar said that the company acquired the land on lease and ownership basis from private owners so the district administration had nothing to do with it.

Farmers protested against the Adani Group in 2018 alleging that the company failed to fulfil its promise to provide jobs to women who had given them their lands for the solar plant.

They added the fencing off of nearly 4,000 acres by the Adani Group blocked access to grazing grounds, further impacting the economic sustenance of the affected communities. They also said that their access to government lands, including kanmaisooranis (drinking water ponds), streams and water courses, was also blocked.

The construction and operation of the solar plant also raised concerns about the depletion of the groundwater table, compounding the environmental and agricultural challenges faced by the local population. Kamuthi villagers raised a big noise about plunging water levels due to Adani’s operations. Adani was extracting 2,00,000 litres of water daily from a village near the Gundar river.

Following a high-decibel public protest, the company was ordered to stop extracting groundwater from that location. Now, the company desalinates groundwater from its site using reverse osmosis (RO) plants. Experts say that RO plants are energy guzzlers and polluting.

During protests, several allegations related to illegal acquisition of land and violation of acquisition procedures were levelled against the Adani Group. A government order by the Revenue and Land Department stated that the company in its application had mentioned about presence of wetlands in the land to be acquired and the then District Collector of Ramanathapuram had give the 'No Objection Certificate' for the same.

The conflict ended after farmers reached a resolution with the company regarding compensation for affected landowners, and a commitment to follow more transparent and ethical practices in the future. 

The Kamuthi case sheds light on the importance of ethical land acquisition practices in large-scale industrial projects and underscores the need for robust regulatory oversight to safeguard the rights and interests of local communities.
