Company taking water from river without consulting Gram Sabha, Pls help...

My name is Halmuni Kumardar. I am calling from Babudehi village in Gangpur block of Sundargarh district in Odisha. Though our district in under 5th schedule of constitution but a local company built a check dam on Napti river in January without consulting Gram Sabhas. 20 villages are dependent on the river and now there is very little water for drinking or irrigation. You are requested to call Collector@9438399144 to help suffering villagers. Kumardar@7809684367
