FARIDABAD Neharpar

The Supreme Court relief for Shahberi villagers has rekindled hope for farmers of Greater Faridabad who have intensified their demand for return of land, acquired by the Haryana government.

The land was acquired for setting up residential sectors and infrastructure projects in Nehar Par area. “We want our land back. We too are planning to move Supreme Court,“ said Shiv Dutt Vaishisht, acting president of Kisan Sangarsh Samiti.

After the Bhatta-Parsaul violence in Greater Noida, top officers in Faridabad stepped up negotiations with farmers on CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda's directions.

Compensation was hiked to R45 lakh from the original R16 lakh but some villagers did not accept the deal. “We want hike in compensation for our land acquired by Huda. Our representatives will take up the cause at the kisan panchayat at Jind on Saturday,“ said Satpal Narvat, convener of the samiti.

  • Haryana government was never serious about constructing infrastructure in Nahar Par Faridabad anyway. Now they have a ready excuse for not doing anything.

    Investors in Nahar Par faridabad flats and floors who are already sitting on massive losses can now pretty much forget about appreciation their investments.

  • let me add my two cents. If some of you, have read my previous about NP Faridabad, so I was never encouraged and interested in NP Faridabad. No doubt, with Farmer's agitation HUDA and other government agencies have got the excuse and shelter for not doing any development work at Faridabad. In-fact, initially people were saying devlopment will be in place 2010 to 2011, few months earlier, they were saying 2013 - 2014 and now people have started saying beyond 2016. This farmer's agitation, development cost, EDC increase, BPTP ethics on elite floor (satire) will melt down the premium of this area.

    Farmer's group are united and will take this to any level. This is for sure that, they will not allow the development to happen till their demands are met. This movement is across NP Faridabad, Greater Noida and now at Rewari. Slowly, the LAND prices will increase many folds and property prices will increase with all these movements. However, actualy end user will be away from the purchases till this dust settles down completely.

    Thanks,

  • farmers what??

    Hi
    Greetings

    Charges of the case proven against GN acquistions in the SC order need to be understood by those protesting in Haryana. The purpose/reason for acquisition for land by HUDA in Haryana has not been defied (unless otherwise proven by facts not known in the public domain).

    Compensation and solatium/annuities with increments for 33YEARS!!! are the maximum and mind boggling as paid to the farmers by HUDA/HOODA.

    Also are being offered govt jobs, residential and industrial plots allotments. This provides ample opportunity for employment/vocations to farmers as avg land holdings are reducing. This forms another part of justification for SC order about future vocation avenues for farmers in UP.

    The latest policy revisions are the most revolutionary and speak high of the current govt in regards to their responsiveness and positive attitude towards farmers whose land is being acquired.
    Land acquisition policy revision likely - Times Of India

    Also the rates are probably the highest in the country and probably the highest for farm land the world over!!!
    upto 72 lakh or $150000 per acre!!

    Haryana revises acquisition policy to placate farmers - Times Of India

    Any idea how much does a farmer gets per acre in UP???

    Issues with builders regarding non payment to farmers are different and administrative mechanisms are available to provide relief to such farmers.

    Administration now needs to play a mature role at handling such issues and ensure that development in the area is not stymied. This is already lagging way behing the schedule. Surprisingly to get a dream home of just a 1000sq ft an end user pays 272000 to govt (through builder as edc/idc) towards sewarage, roads, etc. The reality is no sewerage, roads and a very very bad infrastructure..

    If the administration makes an excuse of it, about 2500 acres with investments from 1000s of homeseakers would drag the officials and HUDA to court as being purported by various forums. The number of home seekers is too high as compared to a few farmers millionaire, largely misdirected and possibly ignorant about the charges in the UP case.

    Cheers
