Jewar airport: DM, MLA assure villagers of help in rehabilitation, resettlement

Noida: Gautam Buddh Nagar District Magistrate Suhas L Y and Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh on Thursday met the residents of Nagla Ganeshi village where land will be acquired for an airport, and assured them of resolving their rehabilitation and resettlement-related issues expeditiously.

Nagla Ganeshi is one of the villages in Jewar tehsil of the district in western Uttar Pradesh whose land falls in the project site of the upcoming greenfield international airport.

As many as 232 families of Nagla Nageshi are to be moved to Jewar Bangar, a township being developed by the state government for rehabilitation and resettlement of those who would be vacating their land for the mega project.

The visit of administration officials including District Magistrate Suhas L Y and the local MLA came as these families in Nagla Ganeshi claim that they were yet to get compensation against their homes which they would use to build new house in Jewar Bangar, according to officials.

Although monetary compensation against their acquired land has been provided to almost all of them but compensation against house and other properties as mandated by the Land Acquisition, Resettlement and Rehabilitation Act is yet to be paid to many of them, the officials said.

"The local Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority is providing smart cards to the affected village residents for their resettlement and rehabilitation as per the law. All compensation will be calculated as per the law and efforts made to ensure the people don''t experience any difficulty in the process in future," DM Suhas L Y said, according to a statement.
