Around 870 land owners, whose plots had been acquired for the long-stuck Global City project, were issued letters qualifying them for allotment of alternative residential plots under the resettlement and rehabilitation (R&R) policy.
The letters, dated June 8, were handed over to the land owners of Gadoli Khurd, Harsaru, Mohhamad Pur, Khandsa and Narsinghpur villages on Monday.
Excluding the 870 plot owners who got the approval, over 30 plot owners were informed about their ineligibility under the R&R policy.
“As of now we have identified who is eligible and who is not eligible for the alternate plots. Further we have given them a month’s time to file their objections, if any, with regard to the eligibility quantum of land,” said a senior Haryana State Industry and Infrastructure Corporation (HSIIDC) official.
According to the HSIIDC officials, for a landowner to be eligible for an alternative plot, at least 75% of his/her land should be acquired by the government.
However, officials said that the location of the alternative plots is yet to be identified.
TOI had earlier reported that HSIIDC had written to the deputy commissioner asking him to intervene and expedite the matter which is pending with the district revenue officer.
HSIIDC had received a total of 907 applications under the R&R policy, of which 897 applications were sent to district revenue officer in May 2017. “Land owners will have to pay 10% of the allotment fee for the plots under the policy,” said the official.
In 2003, 1,385 acres of land was acquired and the landowners were awarded a compensation of Rs 20 lakh/acre. It was eventually revised to Rs1.4 crore/acre by the Supreme Court. However the government never allotted the alternate plots to the land-owners which led to several protests. The project was first launched by the Hooda government.
