The stalemate between residents and the Haryana government over acquisition of land for the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) Expressway may finally end. The NPR is a crucial link proposed between Dwarka in Delhi and Gurgaon.
On Tuesday, the Haryana government announced that it would offer residential plots at nominal rates of R500 per sq yard in posh localities, to owners whose houses were falling within the acquisition limits.
Nearly 250 residential houses and plots in illegal colonies in north Gurgaon, face the threat of demolition.
In a move to break the deadlock, a special committee of government officials offered 60 sq yard plots in Mayfield Garden in Gurgaon, where the market price of land is more than R50,000 per sq yard, to four affected owners of 100-sq yard houses in New Palam Vihar.
