To expand the limits of the city for future industrial growth, the GNIDA has started work on acquiring land in more than two dozen villages.
As many as 12 camps have been planned in April and May to buy the land directly from the farmers. The authority will pay Rs. 3,500 per sqm to the farmers.
To avoid the tedious process of taking over land through the Land Acquisition Act, the authority will try to convince a maximum number of farmers to hand over their land parcels directly. The authority has already identified a private agency, which will help in facilitating the acquisition work.
During the special camps, announcements will be made within the village for people to come forward with relevant documents and sell the land directly to the authority. The villages, which have been identified, include Ladpura, Dhoom Manikpur, Bhanauta, Muradpur, Imaliyaka.
The camps to begin the acquisition work will commence from April 22 and will go up to the last week of May. The list of the acquired land chunks will be submitted to the revenue department officials and the district administration to get the mutation and title changed into the authority’s name.
The Authority officials said the acquisition work was briefly hit due to the pandemic. “But we will need to take over the land and develop it by June. Unless we offer new schemes, investments in the region will get diverted to Noida or the Yamuna region,” said an officer.
