AC to shortly approve Rehabilitation Plan for airport expansion affected families

Jammu: In order to provide much-needed relief to all those families, which have been affected due to acquisition of land for the expansion of Jammu airport, the Administrative Council (AC) headed by Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu will shortly approve Rehabilitation Plan by which free land and amount for start of construction will be given.
The acquisition proceedings for the land measuring 27 kanals and 2 marlas for the expansion of Jammu airport were started way back in 2003-04. The final award in the matter was made in the year 2008 and accordingly the Airport Authority of India (AAI) deposited Rs 5.32 crore with the District Collector, Jammu for acquisition of 27 kanals and 2 Marlas of land at Narwal Pain and Satwari.
A total of 61 families were occupying two separate patches of land in these areas and due to various court cases and failure of the authorities to carry out the rehabilitation of the families being affected, the handing over of the land was delayed. This also resulted into inordinate delay in the completion of the project.
In the recent past, the Revenue Department in consultation with the Deputy Commissioner Jammu prepared a Rehabilitation Plan for all the 61 affected families and placed the same before the Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyum for his approval, official sources told EXCELSIOR.
