- HUDA tries to cross SPR hurdle with higher relief
GURGAON: HUDA has decided to pay Rs 2.35 crore per acre as compensation to the oustees of Fazilpur-Jharsa village, as the dispute with the villagers has brought the work on the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and laying of water pipelines to a halt.
Nearly one-third of the 16-km SPR was because of a dispute over acquisition of 3.96 acres of land. Sources in HUDA said about 90 structures, including homes and shops, in this area that need to be razed for construction of the road.
In August, the Punjab and Haryana high court had ruled in favour of HUDA by dismissing the landowners' petition. Following this, the Authority restarted the acquisition process for 3.96 acres of land according to new market value.
According to a HUDA official, the collector rate/market value of the said land, when the first notice for acquisition was released in 2008, was Rs 80 lakh per acre. However, a market value of Rs 2.35 crore per acre has been finalised in keeping with new land laws. Apart from the compensation, the oustees are likely to get alternative plots within HUDA jurisdiction.
On Saturday, HUDA will submit a report in this regard to P Raghavendra Rao, additional chief secretary for department of town and country planning. Authority claims once the land is acquired, it will lay the water pipeline for new sectors and construct 5km road within a couple of months.

- SPR hurdles gone, work to restart
GURGAON: Construction of the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR), which has been stalled, will resume soon, said Haryana PWD minister Rao Narbir Singh on Sunday. He said all hurdles in the way of the SPR have been removed and owners of houses and land in the way of the road will be given alternate plots.
Construction of a 5km stretch of the 16km-long SPR, which will connect to NH8 via Sohna Road, has been stalled due to a land dispute between Huda and land owners in Fazilpur-Jharsa village, over acquisition of 3.96 acres of land falling in the alignment of the road.
However, after Punjab and Haryana high court issued directives in favour of Huda by dismissing the petition of land owners in August, the Authority has restarted the acquisition process for the remaining 3.96 acres needed for the project. In a recent meeting, Huda officials decided on the market value of the land, as per which compensation would be paid.
Addressing residents of a group housing society in Sector 70, Singh said the recent statement by former chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, in which he alleged that the present Haryana government is under the burden of a Rs 1 lakh crore loan, is baseless.
"The BJP government in the state has not taken any loan till now, so where has this debt come from?" said Singh, a'dding that Hooda should also tell the people his government has left this loan burden for the BJP government.
He said during 10 years of Congress rule, three master plans were passed for Gurgaon and a number of licences issued for developing colonies, but no steps were taken to improve infrastructure. "Now that the BJP government has stabilised itself in one year, it will start doing work. The people will see results in the days to come," he added.
Reacting to residents' demands, he said MCG has installed 46 street lights on the road leading to Eden Heights and 60 more lights will be put up soon.
On the issue of gaining smart city status for Gurgaon, Singh said the BJP government is focusing on Gurgaon's development. "The state government will spend more money than on any other selected smart city in the state, as Gurgaon contributes about 52-56% revenue to state coffers."

- Now the residents of the villagers on SPR have to get the plots in nearby sectors 48 or 49 shortly and they have to shift in another 6 months to new place. It is being said that by June 2016 this whole SPR will be ready for commuting.
But in the meantime a new conflict has come into forth that instead of 17 residents in Huda's record, about 80-90 persons are claiming plots who have made their houses afterwards and all these extra people are demanding plots which Huda is not agreeing. Matter is still between these two and have not heard any compromise on this from any side.
Inspite of all this we can hope positive news as SPR and NPR are now ambitious projects for Huda now and Huda is taking legal advice on this issue. Keep an eye on the issue and quote here whenever you get from anywhere.
By the way ranveerboken; ji what's going in this regard. Pls mention here as you were updating earlier.
Thanks and regardsCommentQuote1Flag

Golf Course Road makeover priority for new Huda boss

GURGAON: Taking over as the new Huda administrator on Monday, Hardeep Singh identified the makeover of Golf Course Road into a 16-lane expressway and completion of the northern and southern peripheral expressways as his priorities.
The government is pushing for the Golf Course Road project to be completed before the global investment summit that Gurgaon is to host in March next year.
"These three main road projects that connect Delhi to Gurgaon will be my focus areas. Our effort will be to complete these three projects as soon as we can. The main problem we seem to be facing is to provide alternate plots to those owners whose properties are to be acquired in order to construct the northern and southern peripheral roads," said Singh.
Speaking about the obstacles in the Golf Course Road project, he said that in the case of some patches, land owners had gone to court and obtained a stay. "Apart from the court stay, there are a few places where there are some encroachments along this road which seems to be causing delay to the construction process. These encroachments will be removed at the earliest so that major part of the work gets over by March next year," he said.
Two weeks ago, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had asked the MCG and Huda chiefs to work on improving connectivity between Delhi and Gurgaon. Also, PWD minister Rao Narbir Singh surveyed Golf Course Road last week and directed Huda to ensure that the road upgrade work gets completed before the 'Happening Haryana Global Investors Summit-2016' begins in March 2016.
Talking about other things that he would want to improve in the city, Singh said the capacity of the Badshapur drain will be expanded by next monsoon to tackle the problem of waterlogging in sectors. He also said the citizens' charter will be followed so that the complaints are resolved immediately.
Before assuming his new post, Singh, a Haryana Civil Service officer was managing director of the State Federation of Co-operative Sugar Mills Limited. He also holds charge as additional director, urban estates, Gurgaon.CommentQuote0Flag
