GURGAON: Some 30 land owners in Sector 37C, whose plots are coming in the way of the Dwarka Expressway project, have applied for alternative plots under the land pooling scheme. Allotment of alternative plots to these landowners will only help Huda in early completion of the project, officials said.
The acquisition of land in New Palam Vihar, Kherki Daula and Chouma in sectors 37C and 110A due to pending litigation in the Punjab and Haryana high court is one of the major obstacles in the completion of the high-speed corridor, given Huda has already completed the construction of 14.33 km of the 18-km-long Dwarka Expressway.
Earlier this week, land owners, whose plots have held up the completion of the expressway in Sector 110A, had applied for alternative land under land pooling scheme. Now, with the application from land owners from Sector 37C, officials said the project is likely to completed soon. Some days ago, Huda had decided to make 13km stretch of the expressway operational from August 22.
“Till now, 30 out of 83 land owners have applied for alternative residential and commercial plots in Sector 37C under the land pooling scheme,” Huda’s land acquisition officer and estate officer-I Omprakash said. He said their applications have been forwarded to the Huda administrator and a meeting is scheduled to take place later this week.
Under the land pooling scheme, the estate officer said, Huda gives 1000 square yards of residential and 100 square yards of commercial plots against acquisition of one acre land. Usually Huda gives monetary compensation to the land owner for acquisition of land. “In this case, land owners have shown interest in getting share in the developed land, instead of getting monetary compensation,” he said.
The six-lane Dwarka Expressway, which was conceived over eight years ago, starts from Dwarka in Delhi and ends at Kherki Daula. The e-way, which has now got the status of National Highways, will be the third link road connecting Delhi and Gurgaon, after NH-8 and Mehrauli-Gurgaon Road, and is expected to divert 40% of the traffic on NH-8 within Gurgaon-Delhi.
