    Farmers gear up to sow crops in acquired land




    JAIPUR: With monsoon approaching and farmers gearing up to sow the next crop, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has a big challenge ahead to take possession of remaining acquired land for the ring road project.

    As the clouds of uncertainty continue to hover over the project, even those farmers who had surrendered their lands are preparing to sow groundnut and bajra after rain this monsoon.

    Kisan Lal Chaudhary, a farmer of Chimanpura village, whose 40 bigha has been acquired, says, "We are prepared to sow the next crop. We have ploughed the fields, purchased seeds and dumped cow dung (manure) in our fields. "

    A JDA official claimed that so far they have taken possession of 55% of land that is required for the project. However, the remaining farmers who have surrendered their land continue to hold possession and sow crops as the deadlock between them and the government in connection with returning of excess land continues.

    Also, the farmers who have taken allotment letters are planning to sow the crop and in such circumstances the process of taking possession can be delayed by another four months. Meanwhile, a JDA official said: "We will not allow the farmers to sow the crops this time. And if required, we will take stringent action against them."

    Badri Prasad, president, Ring Road Sangharsh Samiti, said, "There are 1,500 farmers and their 10,000 family members will be affected by the project. Entire land of every third farmer is being taken for this project. If he surrenders his land, there is no indemnity what they will do till the project is completed. So many farmers cannot be put at risk as uncertainty prevails."

          Giving land to institutes at low rates proves costly to housing board

          JAIPUR: The state government's decision to allot land for educational institutes on concessional rates has given a major financial setback to the Rajasthan Housing Board (RHB).

          According to the officials, recently the urban housing and development (UDH) had taken a decision to allot RHB stadium's land which is 1 lakh square metre land on 50% residential reserve price to the Rajasthan University of Health Sciences in sector 18, Pratap Nagar. With this decision RHB will face a financial loss of approximately Rs 100 crore.

          Official sources claimed that in 2005 the board has allotted 2,200 square metre of land to the Rajasthan University of Health Sciences for free. After this, the university had asked the state government for more land.

          Sources said, "Out of the total 97 square metre land recently allotted to the university by the state government, around 73 square metre of land was reserved for the stadium. The RHB has reserved 13,000 square metre for auctioning for commercial purpose to earn revenue."

          Out of 13,000 square metre reserved, 10,000 square metre was for developing commercial units after auctioning and 3,000 square metre for constructing 24-metre road in the area. "Recently, a decision was taken in the planning committee meeting to combine the land which will be allotted to the university," said an official. He added that soon the proposal to change the land use from commercial to institutional will be forwarded for approval.

          Earlier, on the directions of the state government around 80 bighas was reserved in sector 18, Pratap Nagar for an international convention centre. The RHB spent approximately Rs 20 lakh for the planning. However, later the project was shelved.

            Drinking water projects in Alwar district to get Rs 1,132 crore

            JAIPUR: The National Capital Region Planning Board (NCRPB) has agreed to fund the drinking water supply projects in the Alwar district of Rajasthan worth Rs. 1,132 crore. The state government on Wednesday also gave its consent for these projects. The three schemes sanctioned by the state government are water supply to Alwar city from Chambal river, upgradation of distribution system, 24/7 water supply in urban areas of Tijara, Behror, Rajgarh and augmentation of urban water supply scheme at Bhiwadi.

            Bringing water from Chambal to Alwar and further supplying it to the villages of the district was also announced by chief minister, Ashok Gehlot in his budget for 2012-13. The project will cost Rs. 950 crore. "The state government has given its approval in principle to the water projects and NCRPB will fund the project but it will be in form of loans. These projects will cater to the major parts of Alwar, especially the areas where there is acute water scarcity," said Ashutosh A T, Alwar collector. "Alwar that falls in the national capital region (NCR) has come up as major industrial town. But over the years it has faced a severe shortage of water. To ensure that it remains the first preference of the industrialists and also that the residents of the districts could get proper drinking water, these schemes are being funded," said an official of NCRPB.

            So far administrative and financial approval have been issued by the officials concerned for carrying out the feasibility report.

              SC notice to Rajasthan on illegal mining

              ALWAR/JAIPUR: The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to the state government on a petition alleging that despite a ban, illegal mining was continuing in Alwar district.

              A vacation bench of Justice S Radhakrishnan and Justice J S Khehar issued the notices on a petition filed by an NGO, Society for Awareness and Development, which said that despite two bans imposed in 2005 and 2010, illegal mining was continuing unabated in 11 villages of Tijara and Bhiwadi tehsils.

              The NGO said that the state authorities had turned a blind eye to rampant illegal mining, resulting in the death of labourers in some places. They also referred to May 18 newspaper reports saying 10 labourers were trapped in the debris during illegal mining in Alwar's Choharpur village.

              The court directed the matter to be posted before the forest bench after summer vacation. The NGO alleged that illegal mining was not only depleting the forest cover but also eroding the Aravali ranges.

              Meanwhile, in Alwar district, police and the district administration claimed to have started a campaign against illegal mining. But they were yet to arrest anyone involved in mining. So far, they were able to seize just some equipment used in mining.

              "We have seized six earth movers, 40 dumpers, two drilling machines, two power generators and other equipment," said Umesh Chand Dutta, superintendent of police, Alwar.

              He claimed that police have identified at least 36 people who would be be arrested. "We will certainly make arrests," he said. On Friday 77 cartons of explosives have also been seized from various regions in Alwar.

              The local people residing in Tapukada and Behor villages have been protesting against illegal mining and had submitted memorandum to the district collector.

                Supreme Court unhappy over roadblocks in Jaipur development

                JAIPUR: The Supreme Court has observed that it is unfortunate that the public representatives in Jaipur are creating obstacles in the development of the Pink City as a world class one.

                The empowered committee, constituted by the apex court to examine the development of Pink City as a world-class one, submitted its report on July 13. The Supreme Court made the above observations based on the report findings.

                On the other hand, the court appreciated the efforts of the empowered committee for removing encroachments in the Walled City. After the findings, the Supreme Court had mentioned the committee was not focused on removing encroachments, but planned proper rehabilitation of them.

                As the state government has shown apprehensions over initiating the pilot project for ducting (underground tunnel for wiring) in the Walled City, the court asked the state government to submit the affidavit within two weeks in this regard.

                Recently, in a seven-point letter, dated July 3, addressed to the empowered committee, the urban development and housing department has mentioned the reasons for not initiating the Rs 3,404 crore pilot project at this point of time.

                  3 state highway projects approved

                  JAIPUR: The high-level committee of finance ministry on Monday approved the three highway projects of Rajasthan.

                  The Public Private Partnership Appraisal Committee (PPPAC) has given its nod for the extension of two-lane highway of Rajsamand-Bhilwara to a four-lane one. The 90-km stretch will be constructed at a cost Rs 668 crore. The other projects that were approved by PPPAC are national highway-65 connecting Haryana border to Salasar and the 77.3 km long Jodhpur-Pali highway. The projects will cost Rs 530 crore and Rs 332 crore respectively.

                  The state government was making efforts for a long time to get the projects approved from the Central government. However, the officials claim the two-lane Rajsamand-Bhilwara highway was sufficient for the existing traffic. The projects will mostly be built under build, operate and transfer (BOT) toll mode.
