More compensation for Jewar villagers

Greater Noida: Residents of Jewar Bangar village are eligible for an additional Rs 158 over and above what was declared as the compensation amount for a sqm of land acquired for rehabilitating families directly affected by the Jewar international airport project, according to a fresh notification. Landowners will now get compensation at Rs 2,838 per sqm, instead of Rs 2,680 per sqm fixed earlier, officials said.

The additional Rs 158 per sqm will have to be paid since it has been 360 days from the time the state government had notified the acquisition of 48.1 hectares for rehabilitating the families displaced by the Jewar airport project.

Under the provisions of the Land Acquisition Act, 12% annual interest needs to be paid to the families on the compensation amount from the time notification is issued.

Among all the places where land has been acquired for the construction of Jewar airport, Jewar Bangar has secured the highest rate of compensation so far. Families from the six villages, which came directly under the project, were awarded compensation at the rate of Rs 2,300 for a sqm last year.

Additional district magistrate (land acquisition), Balram Singh said that so far, 58 people in Jewar Bangar have applied for compensation in lieu of their land. “The rate awarded in Jewar Bangar is higher since its circle rate was also higher than the other villages. Jewar Bangar is close to the urbanised part of Jewar tehsil. It is also closer to the state highways and major roads.”
