Admin targets 15 days to finish Samruddhi land acquisition.

Riding on a good response wave from farmers, the district administration plans to target the completion of the land acquisition process for the proposed Samruddhi Expressway in Aurangabad district in a fortnight. Already, 300 hectares of the 1,600 hectares have been acquired, Aurangabad district collector Naval Kishor Ram said

Already, 300 hectares of the 1,600 hectares have been acquired, Aurangabad district collector Naval Kishor Ram said.

“The district office of the department of registration and stamps would remain open even on public holidays to complete the formalities swiftly,” he said at a land acquisition process of a group of farmers from the nearby villages on Saturday.

Eleven farmers from Shevga, Jalgaon-Feran, Jaipur, Abdimandi and Kolthan and more villages handed over their land for the highway project in the presence of the district collector.

Ram said all the owners from Aurangabad district were willing to give their land for the expressway. “We faced difficulties in land acquisition initially, but that has improved now. The right compensation that the government has offered the farmers is the reason for their willingness,” he added.
The announcement comes close on the heels of chief minister Devendra Fadnavisrecently stating that the actual work on the project would begin from January. At a public function in Nagpur recently, Fadnavis said almost 50% of the total land acquisition would be completed by November.

 The district collector appealed to the farmers to contact senior officials, including him, if they have any doubts or queries regarding land acquisition and compensation. According to the authorities, 300 hectares of land acquired so far towards the project belongs to three villages.
 The entire length of the proposed expressway is about 701 km and for the ease of planning, design and execution, the total length of the project has been divided into five packages in relation to the district boundaries, including a 155-km stretch of Jalna and Aurangabad.
The compensation towards the land to be acquired in parts of Aurangabad district for the proposed highway has been around five times that of the ready reckoner rates with money up to Rs 1 crore per hectare offered as compensation in a few areas to the land holders.
