GNIDA CEO Rama Raman on Wednesday held an emergency meeting with top officials to discuss how to lift the Noida Extension impasse.

The CEO said there were three major demands of farmers. "They want increased compensation, legal possession of abadi land and developed land plots. We will first talk with farmers and try and solve maximum problems at the authority level. If need be, the state government will be informed about the increased compensation demand," he said.

Officials said work had already started on solving abadi land disputes. "Abadi land, wrongly acquired, is being leased back to the owners. A group of farmers are not happy about the process. They want permanent ownership," an official said.
