Gumti Hydroelectric Power Project is located at Thirthmukh, Tripura, India . The Gumti hydel project was commissioned in 1974, despite fierce protests by nearly 40,000 indigenous tribes people whose fertile lands went under water. Not even one-fifth of the people who were forced to give up their land were compensated because most tribesmen had no land records to prove ownership . Also, during 1970’s rehabilitation policy was not in place, nor land records by the original land holders available. As a result many land less youths become insurgents and perhaps the problems of militancy of Tripura has gained ground.
