Hi-tech township policy: UP chief secretary seeks clarity on unacquired land
| Thursday | 14th February, 2019
The two private developers which won the bid have acquired a little over 50% of the land till date.
In such cases, the farmers are neither able to sell the same to any other party nor use it for themselves.
“There have been periodic protests from farmers as under the policy they are bound by law to sell their lands only to select private developers,” said Kanchan Verma, vice chairperson, GDA.“But the problem is where their land has not been fully acquired by private developers.
It is in this regard that the chief secretary has called a meeting on February 18, which will be attended by officials from all development authorities,” she added.Under the policy, the state government, between 2009 and 2010, had notified over 8700 acres of land across 18 villages along NH-24 in Ghaziabad to develop a hi-tech city.
GHAZIABAD: UP chief secretary Anup Chandra Pandey will soon convene a meeting of development authorities across the state for clarity on land that has not been acquired by developers under the hi-tech township policy , officials said on Wednesday.There have been sporadic protests from farmers across the state, including Ghaziabad , demanding de-notification of such land.According to farmers, they are neither able to sell their land which hasn’t been acquired by developers selected by the government nor use it for themselves, for years now, because of clauses in the policy.
