Farmers from Shahpur and Dherand villages in Raigad district on Saturday submitted a signed consent letter to the Collector for the set-up of a Tata power plant on their land in exchange of adequate compensation, official sources said.

A letter signed by 226 farmers read: "We want adequate compensation in return of our land including a job for every family member and civic amenities for the villages."

The Maharashtra state government had issued a notice to the villagers in March this year asking them to put forth their objections to the project but at a meeting called by the Collector they had refused dialogue on the matter.

Issues between them and the company management had subsequently been resolved, Saturday's letter said.
