dda to take a call on land acquisition bill

gfiles-mary2015-3THERE is a land racket bomb in Delhi, allegedly owed to none other than Kamal Nath. On September 5, 2013 (before the DDA’s notification 2687 E), it was decided by the Ministry of Urban Development to allow the land pooling policy where a landowner can surrender land holdings into the central pool and be a stakeholder in the development proposed on the land. In a way, it was a move to take away land jurisdiction from the Delhi Development Authority. Sources disclosed that all powerful Congress ministers and leaders of the Delhi Government aggregated agriculture wherever it was available. Due to the change in the master plan in Delhi, land prices skyrocketed in Dwarka, Najafgarh, Narela and Bawana. The planners were running against time as the 2014 general election was approaching and mandatory approvals had to be in place. According to the reports, the Lt. Governor of Delhi cleared the file this January and sent it to the DDA Vice Chairman. Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu is aware of the issue. Naidu has to decide whether Delhi has to make a move on the land pooling policy or not. Whether it is sanctioned or not, farmers who have taken the advance are happy as they are enjoying the luxuries of life without losing their land. The so-called farmer-friendly top Congress leadership is jittery as billions of rupees are at stake.
