  • Almost six months after the Supreme Court ordered the demolition of illegally constructed villas of Kapico Kerala Resorts Pvt. Ltd on Nediyathuruthu island on Vembanad Lake, no concrete steps have been taken to implement the apex court verdict.
  • The Supreme Court on January 10, 2020, dismissed appeals by Kapico against a Kerala High Court decision banning the construction of resorts and removal of structures on the backwater island.
  • In March 2013, the Kerala High Court ordered the demolition of Kapico along with illegal structures constructed by Vaamika Island (Green Lagoon Resort) on Vettila Thuruthu, also on Vembanad Lake.
