Even as the issue of land enhancement at the Industrial Model Town (IMT), Manesar, has turned into a major row between industrialists and the state government, the Haryana State Industries and Infrastructural Development Corporation (HSIIDC) has started sending fresh enhancement notices to over 500 plot owners in Sector 8 of the township.
However, the HSIIDC’s move has drawn sharp reactions from the industrial plot owners.
More than 100 owners, owing allegiance to the Manesar Industries Welfare Association, have made a representation in this regard at the corporation’s estate office in Manesar.
The plots in Sector 8 were allotted in Phase IV of the development of the industrial township. A Gurgaon court had awarded enhanced land acquisition rates for farmers while resolving 75 and 118 cases in November 2010 and March 2011, respectively.
Though the HSIIDC challenged the order in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which is yet to take a final decision, the corporation claims to have already deposited Rs. 527.27 crore with the revenue department.
The corporation is now raising the amount from the plot owners. As per the HSIIDC’s calculation, the additional price recoverable from the allotees of Phase IV is around Rs. 2,687 per sq metre. For plots developed in Phase I, nearly Rs. 1,300 crore is to be paid by the HSIIDC to farmers in the wake of SC increasing the cost of the land.
However, IMT industrialist claimed that the amount would not be more than R400 crore and have moved the court in this regard.
