Noida airport project: 450 families to stage protest; claim benefits not yet given

Noida: Around 450 families affected by the Noida airport project are planning to stage protests to demand resolution to their pending issues. Reportedly, these families will hold a meeting with the local MLA on Jewar-Jahangir Road in Rohi on Thursday to take a final call on the matter.

“We will meet at the Surajpur collectorate within a week to hand over a memorandum to the district magistrate. Some affected families are yet to get the benefits that were promised to them”, TOI quoted Hans Raj, an affected villager from Dayantapur, as saying.

According to a report published in the Times of India (TOI), the cases of about 450 families have not yet been resolved. Meanwhile, aggrieved villagers claimed that they were entitled to several benefits, including a plot in the Jewar Bangar township. Along with this, the displaced families were eligible for Rs. 5.5 lakh under the rehabilitation act and also the value of their immovable assets.

Reportedly, more than 3,600 families were listed during a survey conducted by the district administration to keep track of the families affected by the project. However, only 3,100 have been provided rehabilitation benefits so far.

On the other hand, the additional district magistrate of Gautam Budh Nagar, Balram Singh, said that a beneficiary needs to be a permanent resident of the area for a period of at least three years to claim all the benefits. He stated that some people have migrated and settled elsewhere. Thus, they can’t get all the benefits.
