Description: Recent coal bed methane (CBM) exploration initiatives proposed for Cauvery Delta (Nagapattinum, Thanjavur, and Tiruvarur Districts) in Tamil Nadu have triggered a feisty three-pronged battle of wits between the Great Eastern Energy Corporation Ltd. (GEECL) –the proposing agency- the government, and the local peasant communities. The debate's been on the boards since 2010. Cancelled and reactivated on several occasions as political regimes changed. Indecisiveness on top of confusing decisions on behalf of the authorities (both local and central) have sparked agitations from the local peasant communities from time to time over the anticipated consequences of CBM/hydrocarbon exploration on the groundwater-fed agrarian economy.
