A lot of companies are advertising for property citing nearness to Dwarka expressway corridor.

Shilas, Indiabulls Centrum Park and Ramprastha Edge Tower come to mind.

Does anybody have news on when this construction will start and when it is likely to finish? Has the contract been awarded and to whom?
Date of completion and start of operation will be vital news for evaluating the pricing of flats sold in this corridor.

Last I heard was that a few houses in Palam Vihar were slated for demolition for this expressway in May June 09 or thereabouts.

    May be they are owning more land on the alternative proposal/routes in their mind. This will maximize their gain.

    This seems to be the most probable additional reason. If anyone thinks they are doing it for the larger good of NPV oustees, they are in illusion.If their stand and plan succeeds riding on the shoulder of the other protesters then they benefit materially and politically & if not, they still get the visibility and publicity so needed in their profession. The motives are rarely other than ulterior. HUDA employees seem to be party with them, not sure why (besides the possible inducements!) or plain and simple 'lie low- go slow' principle of non performing, job secured, soon-to-be-transferred --after making their part of moolah types! The lethargic, good for nothing babus draining our hard earned money have no accountability either! What can any lofty ideals of any ruler do, Beat the dead horse, isn't it.

    That said, (and said enough!) how long can they test the patience of those who are suffering silently? DEW has to come one way or the other even if it be after the hunger of all these are satiated!!

    The machinery and labour has been removed in the Sector 111 area because the work where the land was available for carpeting road is complete. On both sides of Bajghera Rd, upto the unauthorised colony on one side and Delhi border on the other, the blacktop is complete.

  • The problem is that not many members on this forum know the ground reality. Therefore, most of the views expressed about the causes of delay are hypothetical. High Court ordered alternate plots to house owners to which both the parties agreed. HUDA thought it had the necessary land for the same that was acquired in sector 110A. However, HUDA ran into Azad Singh Rana issue as he wanted adequate compensation for his land. Azad Singh Rana was justified because what HUDA was offering was not satisfactory amount. One cannot fault HUDA also as that has been the land acquisition policy all over India for years. That issue was resolved by bringing Azad Singh Rana under land pooling policy even though he was not qualified under the land pooling policy. Haryana land pooling came much later whereas this land was acquired in 2011 Under land pooling policy, he was getting 1000 sq. yards of residential land and 100 sq. meters of commercial plot for every acre of acquired land. Bringing Azad Singh Rana under the land pooling policy showed the resolve of the current govt. that it wanted the issue sorted out at any cost.

    HUDA again thought that it had enough plots to accommodate both the house owners led by Rishi Raj Rana, and Azad Singh Rana. HUDA did demarcation of plots. However, to my understanding, a High tension wire is passing over some of the demarcated plots. Therefore, the land owners protested that the development plan was not shared with them. HUDA decided to change the demarcation and make the land under High tension wire as green belt. This resulted in lower number of plots available for allotment. These plots are not enough to accommodate all the affected parties. Therefore, no one is really at fault. House owners are asking for what has been settled in the High Court. Azad Singh Rana is asking for what has been promised to him. HUDA officials are in a bind because they do not have enough land to accommodate all the parties. Therefore, for once, HUDA is trying its best. But if there is not enough land available to accommodate all the affected parties in the same area, they can be accommodated somewhere else.

    Azad Singh Rana does not have legitimate claim to have the plots in the same area. Also, Punjab and Haryana High Court decision is also not very strong in his case. The very fact that he is being accommodated under the land pooling policy, he will have to relent. How this will happen is a million dollar question. As the Govt. is determined to have the road through, HUDA will come out with some other land. So far, HUDA has not been forced to think in those terms. HUDA has enough land to do that.

    Sincerely appreciate sharing the ground reality with facts!

    I would request you to help and suggest the Core Committee the way forward.

    Manuvihaan! I suggest a joint meeting with all stake owners including oustees, HUDA and our members can fetch a solution.

    Thanks for sharing. Does take away some part of angst against inactivity. Obviously for most of us the source of information/misinformation is the post by members here. Proactive approach with the intention of solving the issue is what is visibly lacking in the whole scenario. However, it is possible that every one is right in what they are doing, but it may not be enough if there is no outcome! in that case a viable alternative approach to everyone's good needs to be found out by HUDA, and fast. After-all, a decade is too long a time in real estate realisation!

    It was old story, only few big plots are coming under high tension wire and that was not the issue since before delivering possession HT line has to be shifted or may green belt proposed beneath that though layout has already been approved, hence, again loop into the process would delay entire matter, right now nothing is decided but may HT line shifted. Your another point is correct that HUDA didn't own enough land to accommodate all outsees apart inside HUDA a game plan is mushrooming and problem become worsen due to frequent transfer of HUDA top bosses.

    Regardless above, the fact is, as on date is HUDA outnumbered the plots against land-loser, though right now I can't disclose the actual issue but problem again come-back.

    I think there is a need to look at an alternate route for DEW bypassing the litigation area. I think HUDA is aready looking at it for temperory connectivity via the Bajghera road onto the Delhi-Najafgarh road. These are already existing roads and only have to be connected/widened in small patches. This could be a temporary solution till the land issue is resolved and will put pressure on land owners to negotiate. This appears to be a viable option in absence of clear decision/delay on DEW. I think the Leaders of the DEW agitation may kindly look at this

    Sir , Although most of the points you hve mentioned here are factually correct but a few things I appreciate and are appropriate to be brought out are :-

    1. When the outsees and their behavior were things well know to HUDA why was the layout Tplan not shared with them prior to the date of draw ? Such litigations can never be resolved like this. The outsees will have to be taken into confidence and the proceedings have to be transparent . An org Like HUDA need not be taught this.

    2. Unsatisfactory compensation and land share in pooling are one side of the story , there is section who just dont want the outsees to vacate due to pitty political gains .

    3. HUDA in this case has also behaved as if they are sad to part with their higher compensation and land not realising their sadness is only adding to the miseries of common ppl.

    4. I am sure a few from HUDA would be expecting a higher compensation for themselves as they claim to be playing a vital role . Had they wanted and wished such issues would have been resolved by now.

    5. The news or work being stopped and bla bla is all local gali level agendas which shouldnt really be bothering. The day court is satisfied and passes an order all will have to go and if required with high security .

    6 Its high time that HUDA be delinked from this never ending litigation and it be handled by CM office , MORTH and PMO. Even if it requires legal intervention the latter can handle it well.

    What about NHAI? Isn't the entire stretch of NPR declared as NH? In that case, shouldn't the litigation and compensation be handled by NHAI now? Has HUDA initiated the process to transfer the matter to NHAI?

    Sir , Meeting with us and HUDA is OK. Outsees I have tried once. A few are just not intrested in a solution. Others who may be ready to cooperate has to be resolved by HUDA.

    I still say Sir. If somehow we can get NHAI and Gadkari serious on this it ll be a through fare. NHAI wont shy off compensations . Moreover my take is that even the courts do not interfere much in NHAI infra projects unless onjections are of serious nature.

    Above is a reply we received from NHAI official. HUDA is not we are really hopeful with. Hoping a lot of clarity in next 1-2 months.
