BALCO brazen violations in the construction of power plants'

Vedanta controlled Bharat Aluminium Company Ltd (Balco) in Chhattisgarh allegedly didn't bother to seek 'mandatory' permission from the Korba Municipal Corporation (KMC) for its projects in the area. 
Documents obtained from the KMC under the right to information (RTI) have revealed that despite several notices having been served to Balco in the last few years to halt construction, it continued with the work without the necessary permits. 

Some of the major projects are being carried out in the industrial town of Korba, including a couple of thermal power plants.
