Ninder residents face uncertainty as JDA serves evacuation notice

DNJAI80275 | 9/16/2017 | Author : DNA Correspondent | WC :331

An evacuation notice from local development authority has raised concerns of residents of Ninder in Jaipur. The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) had acquired nearly 1,100 bighas of land at Ninder on Sikar road in 2010, of this nearly 900 bighas was to be acquired from private owners.
As many of these private owners challenged the decision at court, the process remains stagnant. To resolve the legal complications, JDA has deposited the due compensation at a local court and is set to commence evacuation drive at Ninder from Saturday." Initially the evacuation process will remain limited to taking possession of land required to develop a road proposed through the area," said a source at JDA.
Even this limited drive remains a cause of concern for thousands of those residing within the acquired area. The locals have decided to meet early on Saturday morning to decide the future plan."We will protest the evacuation," Nagendra Singh, leader of agitated local residents reflects sentiments of the affected people." A decision however, will be taken after mutual discussions," he adds. Evacuation from the entire acquired length will have over 10 thousand people rehabilitated. Among these, many are those to have bought and developed properties at unregularised colonies developed on farm land.  
According to sources, JDA has deposited nearly Rs 60 crore at a local court over the past few days in accordance with the acquisition orders.
Though the compensation being delivered is not adequate. Many of these are farmers who deny to part with their fields while others have been demanding compensation in accordance to the prevalent market rates.

decision unjust
As of now the compensation has been established at Rs 50 lakh per bigha on land adjoining highway and Rs 30 lakh per bigha for the inner area. We have not sold our land to real estate developers when the demand for property was at peak and still lose it to greed of JDA,” says a local, calling JDA decision unjust.
