The land of the Joshimath area is becoming sensitive due to environmental reasons
At present, the challenge of deciding the direction of the Joshimath area due to landslides is in front. If we look at history, it comes to the fore that this whole area faced a big tragedy in the year 1970. Effects and causes of this tragedy, Director of Uttarakhand Space Applications Center (USAC), Prof. MPS Bisht has stated in his Ph.D.
According to the facts of the Ph.D. completed between the year 1985 to 1991, the vulnerability of land in the Joshimath area is responsible for external reasons as well as major internal reasons.
