Impacts Of The Proposed Himalayan Ski Village Project In Kullu, Himachal Pradesh

Book cover
Alfred Brush Ford’s business company ABF International came to India in 2005 with a spate of investments in mega tourism projects. The largest one with an investment of $300 million was a Ski Village to be built in Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh. The Himalayan Ski Village Limited (HSV), in which Alfred Ford maintained the largest share, was floated for it. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the proposed Himalayan Ski-Village Resort in Kullu District was inked on 9th December 2005 with the then State Cabinet approval. Local campaigns against the projectbegan in 2006, but this did not lead to any change by the HSV management. Jan Jagran Evam Vikas Samiti (JJVS), a local NGO based in Kullu District, managed to get a hold of the copy of the MoU which revealed that the government had heavily short changed public and the state’s interest for a property development plan for private profits. Irrevocable rights to use water, power and land is what shocked the residents of the proposed project area. It is also a project that has been approved without due public consultation. This publication is a fact-finding report on the project and shows why local communities are campaigning against the project. Contact: [email protected], +91.80.25457607 Visit:,
