Hi,

I posted on their github repo and they've replied with lot more details and 
opportunities for collaboration if anyone is interested. There seems to be 
a map created by IndiaSpend in this regard. You can join in the 
conversation there:

It would be great if there was a publicly available map of all projects.

This seems to be the repo mentioned:
https://github.com/pratikunterwegs/forest-clearance-india

(the news article as is typical of Indian media outlets makes sure to never
link to the sources they're talking about - I got this on searching the web)
