Noida airport: Farmers want more landowners to attend govt camps

Greater Noida: A large number of farmers from the six Jewar villages that are likely to be impacted by the second phase of the Noida International Airport project are expected to participate in the camps to be organised by the district administration from January 7 next year.

To finalise their next strategy, farmers had recently approached advocates and experts and were informed that under the provisions of the Land Acquisition Act, 2013, the administration assumes that a landowner who does not visit such camps -- where consent is noted down -- is in favour of the project.

Advocate Saurabh Yadav told TOI that under the Act it is believed that the one who wants to register their protest will take extra effort to visit the camp and mention their objection or reservations in writing. “The person protesting has to register his objections before the administration or the acquisition agency in person, otherwise it is assumed he/she is willing to give up the land,” Yadav said.

Farmers have now taken initiative to create awareness about the provisions of the Act among the landowners, urge them to visit the camps and submit their dissent note in writing to oppose the project.
