Greno authority begins fresh acquisition in Shahberi

The Greater Noida Authority has begun a fresh the process of acquiring 156 hectares in Shahberi village and is likely to complete the re-acquisition within two months, as reported by the Times of India.

Shahberi was the first village where land acquisition was cancelled by the Allahabad high court in 2011 after farmers moved court. It incited hundreds of farmers in other villages of Greater Noida to do the same, igniting widespread protests against the Mayawati regime over land acquisition.

The Shahberi acquisition was put down as the land was acquired under the urgency clause for a 'public purpose' - industrial development, but its use was later changed to residential and an array of housing projects was planned by the builders.

In the fresh acquisition process, the urgency clause won't be invoked, villagers' objections will be heard, and they will be compensated at double the circle rate, anything between Rs 1,800 and Rs 2,000 per sq mt, said Greater Noida Authority chairman Rama Raman. In 2011, the government had paid Rs 850 per sq mt for the land.
 
Raman added that the formalities for acquisition had been completed and the authority will now issue notices to farmers for possession of land.

The fresh acquisition process has evoked mixed feeling among farmers. While one section is happy with the hiked compensation rate, another section is reportedly planning a legal move.

Realtors unequivocally welcomed the fresh acquisition process.
