Nayachar, West Bengal, Sep 12 (UNI) A Geological Survey of India team, led by its Deputy Director General (Operation) Biplab Mukherjee, today studied the soil and sub-soil condition of the island and the probable environmental impact of the proposed chemical hub.

The GSI team comprised three GSI Directors and two senior geo scientists.

Local people staying for long on the eastern side of the island towards South 24 Parganas informed the team that there was occasional subsiding in the area of over one km land and they had to leave their homes several times in the past few years.

Dr Mukharjee said they would take about three to four months to complete their report and submit it to the Director General, who in turn would hand it over to the Government.

Heavy police arrangements were made over the 50 sq km of the island when the team was making the survey.
