  • Authority has no powers to hike land compensation: GNIDA

    Authority has no powers to hike land compensation: GNIDA


    Greater Noida, Jul 28 (PTI) In the wake of the controversy over land acquisition, Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) has said it has no powers to hike land compensation and if the farmers give a proposal it will be sent to state government for approval.
    "This will have to be decided by the state government.
    After farmers give concrete proposal mentioning the amount we will forward it to state government for approval," GNIDA Chief Executive Officer Raman Singh told reporters here yesterday.
    Regarding low compensation complaints by farmers Singh said, "Greater Noida land compensation rates were best in the country. However due to inflation and rise in prices this compensation appears to be low now."
    Without naming anybody Singh said some persons are only taking "political advantage" of the land acquisition issue.
    "We hope to have fruitful negotiations with farmers individually. We have started the process from Patwari and later include other villages too," he said.
    Referring to the allegations by farmers that their ''abadi'' (populated land) was taken by the GNIDA, Singh said, "In 90 percent of the court cases grievance was abadi land. We are planning to simplify the back-lease of abadi land cases."
    Regarding the accusation that the land which was to be used for setting up industrial units are being used for building residential complex, Raman said, "Planned industrial development included residential and commercial activity too." PTI COR

    This whole NE episode is politically motivated and all the deadlines set by court for settlement will pass with no net result.

    What I think is builders wanted to target area between Noida and greater noida so they bribed thhe authority to acquire land...and we know the things how it happened, The problem with builders now is that their bribes have all went in vain and they cant claim it back from authority...poor builders...

  • निर्माण के चलते खेती लायक नहीं रही जमीन


    नोएडा एक्सटेंशन के गांवों में हुए निर्माण कार्य के चलते अब वहां जमीन खेती लायक नहीं रह गई है। कंक्रीट का जाल बिछ जाने से जमीन की उपजाऊ क्षमता समाप्त हो चुकी है। यदि जमीन को समतल कर किसानों को वापस लौटा भी दिया गया तो उस पर खेती करना संभव नहीं होगा। हालांकि जमीन का कुछ हिस्सा अभी खाली पड़ा है, लेकिन निर्माण स्थलों के बीच-बीच में आ रहा है। इसलिए इसकी उपयोगिता भी कम हो गई है।

    पतवाड़ी, बिसरख, खैरपुर गुर्जर, हैबतपुर व इटेड़ा गांव की जमीन पर बिल्डरों का कार्य युद्धस्तर पर था। हैबतपुर व पतवाड़ी गांव में तो आठ-नौ मंजिला इमारत खड़ी हो गई है। बिल्डरों ने निर्माण कार्य शुरू करने से पहले खेतों से भारी मात्रा में मिट्टी खनन कर उस पर कंक्रीट बिछा दी थी। खैरपुर गुर्जर, खेड़ा चौगानपुर, पतवाड़ी, बिसरख व इटेड़ा गांव की जमीन पर जगह-जगह सड़क बना दी गई है। यहां ये पहचान करना मुश्किल है कि किस किसान का खेत कहा है। रोजा जलालपुर के किसान रविंद्र भाटी का कहना है कि सड़कों का जाल फैल जाने से गांवों की सीमा को ही पता नहीं चल रहा। जमीन वापस कर दी गई तो किसानों को अपने खेत की पहचान करना मुश्किल होगा।

    पतवाड़ी के हरपाल का कहना है कि खेतों से भारी मात्रा में मिट्टी उठा दूसरी जगह डाल दी गई है। ऊपरी सतह हट जाने से खेत की जमीन अब उपजाऊ नहीं रही है। ऐसी स्थिति में वे प्राधिकरण के साथ समझौता करना बेहतर समझेंगे। रोजा याकूबपुर के जयपाल का कहना है कि कंक्रीट के जंगल पर अब खेती करना आसान नहीं होगा। प्राधिकरण उचित मुआवजा दे तो किसान जमीन देने को तैयार हो सकते हैं।

  • किसानों ने जेल का निर्माण कार्य बंद कराया


    लुकसर के किसानों ने जिला जेल बनाने के विरोध में बृहस्पतिवार को चारदीवारी का निर्माण कार्य बंद करा दिया। किसानों का कहना है कि उनकी जमीन का अधिग्रहण औद्योगिक विकास के लिए हुआ था। प्राधिकरण ने जमीन पर उद्योग लगाने के बजाय जेल बनवा दी। इससे गांव चारदीवारी के बीच कैद होकर रह जाएगा। किसानों ने चेतावनी दी कि वे गांव के नजदीक जेल नहीं बनने देंगे।
    लुकसर, इमलियाका, दादुपुर, अटाई व पौभारी गांव के किसानों ने लुकसर में बृहस्पतिवार को पंचायत की। उन्होंने आरोप लगाते हुए कहा कि जेल के लिए जमीन आवंटित करते समय प्राधिकरण, जिला प्रशासन व शासन स्तर पर विरोध दर्ज कराया गया था। किसानों के विरोध को दरकिनार करते हुए जिला प्रशासन ने जेल की चारदीवारी का निर्माण कार्य शुरू करा दिया है। किसानों ने कहा कि उनकी जमीन भी नोएडा एक्सटेंशन के गांवों की तरह नई अधिग्रहण नीति के तहत ली जाए अन्यथा वे कोर्ट जाएंगे।

  • Farmers wooed with new policy

    Farmers wooed with new policy - The Times of India

    GREATER NOIDA: With the August 12 deadline to seal a deal closing in, and farmers remaining insistent on higher compensation, Greater Noida Authority (GNIDA) is banking on the state's new land acquisition policy - that offers farmers not only higher rates per square metre but also a handsome annuity - to break the Noida Extension ice.

    After inviting Patwari village to talks on Wednesday, GNIDA officials met the village headman on Thursday. The village, which won its case against land acquisition earlier this month, accounts for the second largest piece of acquired land in Noida Extension.

    After meeting the headman, Reshpal Yadav, GNIDA officials told TOI that the farmers remained adamant on their demand for higher compensation. Maintaining their Wednesday's stand that the state government alone could fix a higher rate for land, the Authority nonetheless tried to bring farmers around by hard-selling the advantages of the new acquisition policy that can be applied to Noida Extension.

    "We have assured the villagers that their demand for increased compensation will be passed on to the state government. Meanwhile, we are willing to address all other demands, including that of regularising abadi land and allotting 6% developed plots in lieu of acquired abadi land," GNIDA chief Rama Raman said.

    According to the Authority, the new policy offers land owners compensation ranging from Rs 960/ sqm to Rs 1,050/ sqm. But its highlights are benefits such as 7% developed land with compensation, or 23% of developed land without any compensation, an annuity of Rs 23,000 per acre for 33 years (increased every July by Rs 800), or a onetime payment of Rs 2.76 lakh.

    Villagers willing to settle for the new compensation policy will have to withdraw their petitions against land acquisition in Allahabad High Court and the Authority will then be able to reacquire their land, thereby resolving the current crisis in the Noida Extension-Greater Noida area. Villagers who fail to arrive at a compromise with the Authority by August 12 will then be heard by an "appropriate" bench of the high court, August 17 onwards. The Authority will also have to submit before the court a detailed report of the negotiations that it carries out with the villagers till August 12.

    Reiterating that the Authority acquires and sells off land for development strictly on a "no-profit-no-loss basis", Raman on Thursday said the current land crisis is not just about land compensation. "Total cost per square metre of land comes to Rs 4,000. Only 50% of this land is available for sale, as the rest goes into development of roads, parks and public utilities. The actual expenditure per square metre of land that the Authority incurs is Rs 10,500 to Rs 11,000 per square metre," he clarified.

    The Authority is hopeful that farmers will understand this economics of land acquisition and development. It has already begun renegotiating with them on their three main demands: increased compensation, rehabilitation benefits and sorting out the long-pending abadi land disputes. While most farmers are currently undecided on the rate of compensation they now want, they are unanimous in seeking rehabilitation benefits, including developed plots, annuity payments, minimum agricultural wages etc. Besides, the farmers are also contemplating demanding a list of other benefits, such as health services, jobs for the unemployed etc.

  • 'हमने दी जमीन, पर हमें नहीं मिला लाभ'


    एनबीटी न्यूज ॥ ग्रेटर नोएडा

    ग्रेटर नोएडा बसाने के लिए सबसे पहले जिन गांवों की जमीन का अधिग्रहण किया गया था , उन गांवों के किसानों को पुनर्वास का कोई लाभ नहीं मिल रहा। इसके विरोध में गुरुवार को किसानों ने ग्रेटर नोएडा अथॉरिटी पर प्रदर्शन किया। किसानों ने अब सात पर्सेंट विकसित प्लॉट और अथॉरिटी की स्कीमो में 17 पर्सेंट कोटे का लाभ देने की मांग की है। किसानों ने चेतावनी दी है कि यदि उनकी मांगें 15 दिनों में पूरी नहीं हुईर्ं , तो वे आंदोलन करेंगे।

    गुरुवार को नवादा , रामपुर जागीर , नवादा , तुगलपुर , गुलिस्तानपुर आदि गांवों के किसान अथॉरिटी पहुंचे। किसानों ने अथॉरिटी अफसरों के खिलाफ जमकर नारेबाजी की। उनका कहना है कि शहर को बसाने में उनके गांवों की जमीन का बहुत बड़ा योगदान है। लेकिन इसके बावजूद अथॉरिटी से पुनर्वास नीति के तहत कोई फायदा नहीं मिल रहा है। तुगलपुर के किसान तेजा गुर्जर ने बताया कि जिन गांवों की जमीन का अधिग्रहण 1991 से 1997 के बीच हुआ है , उनके किसानों को पुनर्वास नीति के तहत न तो सात पर्सेंट विकसित प्लॉट का लाभ मिल रहा है और न ही अथॉरिटी की स्कीमों में 17 पर्सेंट कोटे का लाभ मिल रहा है। किसानों का कहना है कि इन मांगो को लेकर पहले भी वे अथॉरिटी के सीईओ से मिल चुके हैं , लेकिन अब तक आश्वासन के सिवा और कुछ नहीं मिला है। किसानों ने चेतावनी दी है कि यदि उनकी मांगों पर 15 दिनों में कोई ठोस निर्णय नहीं लिया जाता है , तो किसान रणनीति बनाकर आंदोलन करेंगे। किसानों ने अपने मांग से संबंधित अथॉरिटी के सीईओ रमा रमण के नाम एक ज्ञापन एसीईओ वी . के . श्रीवास्तव को सौंपा। इस दौरान मौके पर डीसीईओ अखिलेश सिंह भी उपस्थित रहे। एसीईओ ने किसानों की मांगो पर गंभीरता से विचार करने का आश्वासन दिया है।

  • Noida farmers talk tough on meet eve

    Noida farmers talk tough on meet eve


    NOIDA: The table is set, the invites have been sent out, but when protesting farmers from the city's 54 villages gather to discuss the land compensation issue on Saturday afternoon, their host, Noida Authority, might find the going rough.

    While the Authority, continuing with its accommodating stance, on Friday called the farmers' organization, Kisan Sansh Samiti, for talks at Indira Gandhi Kala Kendra in Sector 6 at 1 pm on Saturday, farmers' representatives talked tough, saying they would demand a written assurance about time-bound resolution of their concerns.

    "We have received the letter and we have decided to seek a written assurance from the Authority that all our demands will be addressed by August 12," said Samiti member Manoj Tyagi. "Besides demanding higher compensation and developed plots against our acquired lands, we will also negotiate on the 21 other demands farmers have charted out," he added.

    The Samiti's list of demands to the Authority includes the right to free health checks at hospitals, jobs for unemployed villagers and free education for children. Noida farmers have threatened to disrupt construction at various housing projects on Noida-Greater Noida Expressway if their demands are not met.

    Meanwhile, continuing with the first round of talks with farmers in Noida Extension, Greater Noida Authority CEO Rama Raman and other officials visited Khairpur village on Friday. Farmers of Khairpur are seeking denotification of roughly 4,500 bighas of land acquired in 2007.

    Sources said Greater Noida Authority has also begun identifying villagers whose petitions are actually pending in court, to hold "secret one-on-one talks". "We have been talking to the villagers, mainly on their respective abadi disputes, and have begun sorting out the differences. We will talk to all villagers in Greater Noida, one by one, and find a solution to their problems," Raman said.

  • Not giving promised plots a mistake: CEO






    Noida authority chairman and CEO Balvinder Kumar has said even the state government cannot effect a hike in land compensation already paid to farmers. He, however, said the authority was committed to solving other issues and saving real estate projects in Noida. Farmers of dozens of villages in Noida have been agitating since July 21, threatening to stall real estate projects coming up in areas surrounding Sector 74 as well as along the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, if their demands were not met. Talking to HT, Kumar admitted non-allotment of developed land plots to farmers, whose land was acquired over the years, had resulted in the current land crisis. “There is a clear sense of anger. Had the abadi land been kept out of the acquisition process, farmers would not have moved court. Plus, allotment of plots is subject to solving of abadi disputes,” the chairman said.



    Announcement for such allotments, in addition to cash compensation for the land acquired, was made in 1997, but till 2008, not more than a dozen plots were allotted. The process has only now picked up some pace with 2,500 allotments made post-2008.



    The chairman said 10,000 farmers were affected because of non-allotment of plots. The authority has identified 125 hectares, which would be used for allotments in 20 villages. "The market value of one such plot is up to R2 crore. This will be a huge relief. Land rates in Noida have gone up drastically. That's one silver-lining."



    Of the 54 villages in Noida, 40 have been agitating for plots for years. The authority is trying to pacify farmers in those villages (surrounding Sector 74 and located along the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway), where big-ticket real estate projects are underway.



    “We have finalised a list of 1,000 farmers in five villages for allotments. Letters will be issued in a couple of days. We will identify more land for the rest 20 villages,” Kumar said. “I have promised farmers will be allowed to retain what they term abadi land and given 5% of their fields, acquired years ago, in developed sectors.”

    जैतपुर के किसान सोमवार को देंगे याचिका


    ग्रेनो अथॉरिटी पर जैतपुर-वैशपुर गंाव के किसानांे ने वादाखिलाफी का आरोप लगाया है। किसानांे ने शुक्रवार को गांव मंे पंचायत कर अधिग्रहण के खिलाफ हाई कोर्ट का दरवाजा खटखटाने का फैसला किया। किसान सोमवार मंे हाई कोर्ट में याचिका दायर करेंगे।

    पंचायत मंे मुकेश रावल ने कहा कि अथॉरिटी ने जैतपुर-वैशपुर में वर्ष 2003 मंे इंडस्ट्री लगाने के लिए 304 हेक्टेयर जमीन अर्जेंसी क्लॉज लगाकर अधिग्रहीत की थी। उस दौरान किसानों को 234 रुपये/ वर्गमीटर के हिसाब से मुआवजा दिया था। किसान तब से मुआवजा बढ़ाकर देने की मांग र रहे हैं। किसान रामकुमार ने आरोप लगाया कि अथॉरिटी ने झूठे आश्वासन देकर अधिग्रहण किया है। अथॉरिटी को जमीन की इतनी जल्दी जरूरत थी तो जमीन इंडस्ट्री लगाने के लिए अलॉट क्यों नहीं की गई। पंचायत में सूबेराम, रामकिशोर, मदनपाल, राज सिंह समेत कई किसान शामिल थे।

    जैतपुर-वैशपुर गांव की 30 पर्सेंट जमीन बिल्डरों के प्रोजेक्ट, 105 मीटर रोड, ग्रेटर नोएडा टु पुरकाजी, 130 मीटर एक्सप्रेस-वे, नॉलेज पार्क-4, मल्टीनैशनल कंपनी, एक मैनेजमेंट इंस्टिट्यूट आदि प्रोजेक्ट शामिल हैं। यहां की 70 पर्सेंट जमीन आज भी खाली है।

    Land row: Talks between farmers and Greater Noida authority fail
    PTI | Jul 31, 2011, 09.44PM IST


    GREATER NOIDA: Talks between farmers of Patwari village and the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority failed on Sunday with the GNIDA refusing to accept their demand for a hike in compensation given to them in exchange for their land.

    "Hike in compensation was beyond my powers. However, if you give some acceptable demands agreed to by all farmers I will put them forward to the state government for approval," GNIDA chief executive officer Rama Raman told peasants of the village during the two-hour talks.

    Farmers have been demanding compensation for their land at the rate of Rs 10000 per square metre.

    He assured them that he would put forward the rest of their demands to the state government for approval including their abadi land (land where the settlements exist) solution, 6 per cent developed land and other village development related demands.

    The GNIDA's main thrust was on striking a deal with Patwari farmers as the Allahabad high court has quashed the land acquisition of 156 hectares of land in this village.

    GNIDA officials feel that once a deal is struck with Patwari, the rest of the surrounding villages may also follow the same pattern.

    I think Authority has no problem to give 6 % developed land plots, the only problem came with higher compensation. Farmers are still sticking with the same demand.

    But in Noida they settled the matter without any higher compensation
