Chandigarh: Haryana government has offered
alternate plots to the affected people, whose houses come
under the acquisition limits of Northern Peripheral Road.

In addition, the house owners have been offered benefits
like compensation of the structure and annuity by the state
government, provided the houses should have been built before Section-4 of Land Acquisition Act was imposed, the government said in a statement.

The concerned house owners, who have been served notices under Section-9 of the Act, can opt to avail this opportunity of alternate plot and can apply for the same to HUDA Administrator, Gurgaon, the government stated.

The 150-meter wide NPR is proposed from Dwarka in Delhi
to the Kherki Daula on NH-8, via Gurgaon. The road would
provide an additional link of Gurgaon with Delhi and help in
decongestion of existing Delhi-Gurgaon roads.

The state government has constituted a high level
committee under the chairmanship of Gurgaon Divisional
Commissioner T K Sharma for providing immediate relief to the oustees due to the proposed NPR.

The Committee had its first meeting today which was
organised at the office of Divisional Commissioner, Gurgaon.

The Committee today recommended allotment of plots in
Mayfield Garden, Gurgaon.

The affected people have been offered plots at a nominal
rate of Rs 500 per square yards, whereas the actual market
rates there are much higher, the statement claimed.

These house owners will be given possession of the plots
as soon as approval is received from the state government, the statement further said.

As per the prevailing policy for rehabilitation of
oustees, they are offered plots in a HUDA sector whenever a
new sector is floated and affected people have to apply for
allotment of plot in accordance to the size of piece of land
acquired.
