Amid allegations of irregular and lack of transparency in allotting land to farmers, the Greater Noida authority has determined to revise the rules and compile data of eligible farmers to streamline the method, officers mentioned on Sunday.
In accordance to land allotment rules, the authority allots 4 to 6% land for residential use in opposition to the entire land acquired from farmers for growth works within the metropolis in an alphabetical order.
Nonetheless, the brand new rules will now make sure that allotment will happen on the premise of the date farmers’ land was acquired.
“Earlier we used to allot the plots on the premise of alphabetical order. The fault with this technique was that somebody whose title begins with the letter A used to get the plot even when his land was acquired just lately, whereas somebody whose title begins with Y will get the plot later even when his land was acquired within the first lot. Due to this fact, we’re making an inventory of farmers on the premise of the date when the land was acquired,” mentioned Amandeep Duli, extra chief govt officer, Greater Noida authority.
In case of there being a number of farmers whose land was acquired on the identical date, the brand new rules will enlist them on the premise of submission of their functions for land allotment, the official added.
Additional, the land will now be allotted in areas close to farmers’ villages, officers, mentioned — a change that comes after farmers’ demand of a uniform coverage to allot them a plot in a sector of their selection within the metropolis.
“Earlier, the planning and the land division used to train discretion to allot the plot in any sector of town. However now the farmers will get these plots solely within the sector positioned adjoining to their village. If there is no such thing as a land left close to their village, then the plot will likely be allotted inside a 3km radius of the actual village,” mentioned Duli..
“The authority should put together and publish the names in an inventory of all eligible farmers and invite objections in order that any error will be rectified,” mentioned Arun Yadav a farmer from Eteda village.
In the meantime, farmers alleged that round 6,000 farmers from 39 villages had been but to get a residential plots.
