The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) will complete the process of land acquisition for construction of master sector roads in the areas between Sohna road and NH-8 in new Gurgaon sectors from sector 68 to 74 by December 9.
As part of its plan to carry out phased development in new Gurgaon sectors, the Huda will announce an award of Rs 2,207 crores for acquisition of 257 acres in six Gurgaon villages. Huda officials said the acquisition process will be completed with the announcement of the award on December 9.
Unlike some earlier instances when land owners objected to compulsory land acquisition, the authority does not expect opposition this time as it is paying compensation at a rate more than the market price.
The Huda Gurgaon has asked the Haryana government to provide funds for compensation. In 2013, the Huda had issued notification to acquire land in six villages, including Badshahpur, Fazilpur Jharsa, Begumpur Khatola, Behrampur, Palra and Nurpur Jharsa.
Large number of housing and commercial projects have come in sector 68 to 74. Possession has also been given to apartment owners in a number of these sectors but the lack of roads and other basis facilities has been a bane for residents. Following repeated complaints by residents, developers have asked the Haryana government to accelerate the delivery of infrastructure.
Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar had announced in September that the development will take place in phases
Parveen Jain, managing director of Tulip Infratech, said this was a timely step by the Huda as the land acquisition notification would have lapsed by November-end. “It would have taken five years to repeat this process. Now, the next best step would be that the cash strapped Huda asks developers to build these roads as they have not paid the external development charges. This would be a win-win situation for every one,” Jain said.
The urban authority reiterated that land acquisition or other issues would not come in the way of infrastructure development. Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav said land acquisition for roads in most of the new sectors has been completed, and the disputed sites along the Southern Peripheral Road and Northern Peripheral Road will also be acquired. “We are working on building the infrastructure in phases as outlined by the CM. Our goal is to complete the master sector roads in new sectors within one year so that residents get improved connectivity, and the quality of life improves,” Yadav said.
