Buildings, houses and plots situated on the reserve land for Shivdaspura airport will not be regularized.
The Urban Development and Housing (UDH) department has turned down the proposal by several developers who have submitted a memorandum to regularize their land as the new airport still remains on papers.
The developers were stumped after advocate general (AG) and committee constituted by UDH minister Shrichand Kriplanai recommended state government not to regularise the reserve land.
As per section 54 (B) of Jaipur Development Authority Act 1982 , there is a provision that land reserve for any project cannot be regularised even if it is not acquired. This was recommend by the AG and the committee constituted by the minister. The committee also mentioned that high court has banned regularisation of such land,” an official said.
With this, fate of many farmers whose land will be acquired for proposed greenfield airport hangs in balance as state government is yet to decide about going ahead with the project.
Many locals are facing inconvenience as development in the nearby areas is stalled after the authority put a ban on land conversion and issuing lease deeds.
After the visit of minister of state for civil aviation Jayant Sinha last year, the state government expedited the exercise to acquire land for second airport in the city.
During his visit, Sinha said that in next five years Sanganer airport will not be big enough to cater to air traffic. According to sources, following this a high level committee meeting was called where JDA was directed to submit the proposal. However , as project requires huge capital, no concrete decision has been taken so far.
The state government will be requiring Rs 6,000 crore to acquire land for new Greenfield Airport project in Shivdaspura area nearly 25 km away from the existing Sanganer airport.
Official informed , the JDA has proposed to acquired 2,094 hectares in 20 villages for the greenfield airport project. In the project has planned to earmark 1,172 hectares land to develop runway . The land for the runway will be acquired from eight villages. As per the proposal, the runway would be 6 km in length and 2.5 km in width.
The acquisition of land will be done by district administration. The process of land acquisition will start only after the preparation of Social Impact Assessment (SIA) study. The district administration will issue a notification for conducting SIA study.
