The Mapithel Dam, a component of the Thoubal Multipurpose Project in Manipur, was approved by the Planning Commission of India in 1980 and was conceived without the knowledge of the public, especially those who are going to suffer the brunt of its adverse impact. Originally slated to be completed in 1987, its construction started only in the 1990s despite widespread protests from the villagers affected by the dam.
