The reason cited by MoEFCC is that the project site at Azhikkal falls under CRZ-1(A) area, wherein no construction is permissible as per the CRZ notification.

This information was given by Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik in a written reply to Elamaram Kareem in Rajya Sabha on 2 December.
