Land pooling clears Dwarka e-way hurdles

Eight land owners, whose plots had held up completion of the Dwarka Expressway, have applied for allotment of alternate plots.

The acquisition of the 19.11 acres of land was one of the major obstacles to the completion of the expressway, work on which is expected to speed up. The Haryana chief minister has asked HUDA to complete the road by June 2017.

"Eight land owners have applied for alternate plots under the land pooling scheme," said Omprakash, land acquisition officer of Huda. He said the screening committee will scrutinize the proposal, after which alternate plots will be allotted through lucky draw.

Omprakash said under the land pooling scheme, Huda will give certain percentage of acquired land developed as residential or commercial plots to a land owner in the same locality, against the land acquired.

While HUDA usually pays monetary compensation to the land owner for acquisition, in this case, owners were keen on getting alternative plots.

Under the scheme, land owners have applied for two plots of 151.7574 sq m, 12 plots of 101.1716 sq m, 10 of 202.4332 sq m, 22 of 252.929 sq m, 11 of 354.10 sq m and nine of 10,042.54 sq m. Besides, they have also demanded they be allotted some commercial plots.

Huda had submitted an affidavit in the high court, saying they will give alternate plots to land owners whose plots are in the way of the Dwarka Expressway in New Palam Vihar, Kherki Daula and Chouma, in sectors 37C and 110A.

Only 14.33 km of the Dwarka Expressway is complete. Work on the remaining portion has been stuck due to delay in land acquisition and the shifting of a transmission line.

Residential projects along the expressway, which were supposed to have been completed, have taken a hit, as the area lacks basic amenities.

Real estate developers had launched over 60 projects with 50,000 residential units along the road, but are now struggling to find buyers.
