The proposal was submitted to higher ups for whole road in which 1089 trees/poles were involved and the said proposal was deferred by the forest Advisory Committee and later on proposal of said road up to Km 7/700 only was prepared and submitted to higher authorities for accord of forest clearance and from Km 7/700 to 18th (village Kansar0 was dropped due to heavy involvement of forest trees.
