Times of India reported that Electro Steel Limited has been accused by the Bokaro district administration of encroaching on government and forest land to set up its infrastructure.

Bokaro DC Mr Sunil Kumar, while conducting a review meeting with Chas SDO Mr Sanjay Singh, Chas DCLR Mr Sundeep Ranjan, revenue magistrate (in-charge) Mr Vijay Kumar Gupta and other officials concerned on Monday, issued a two month deadline to submit a report with authentic figures and facts of the land encroached by the company.

The DC said, "The figures will be verified once again. This time I have directed the officials to verify every inch of land in which ESL steel plant has come up at Chandankyari. The report will be sent to the government for taking suitable action."

Mr Kumar and other officials have swung into action following directive issued by revenue minister Mathura Mahto to the Bokaro administration to submit a detailed report related to land encroached by ESL.

The state government is planning to take stern action against the company in case it is found to have illegally encroached land for its plant.

The forest department has been claiming that ESL has encroached 104 acres of its land while the circle officer, after assessing its own records, claimed 144 acres of forest land was under encroachment.

ESL is coming up with a steel plant on about 2,000 acres of land in Siyaljori and Bhagaband areas.
