GURGAON: Residents who will be displaced by the land acquisition for the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) will be given alternate plots in Sector 37D. The rehabilitation and resettlement scheme will be the same as the one offered for those displaced by the land acquisition for Dwarka Expressway.
Officials said HUDA will soon carry out a survey of the area to finalize the layout plan and available plots in the sector. The SPR will originate from Gurgaon-Faridabad Road near Ghata and meet NH-8 near Kherki Dhaula, and is proposed to be connected to the NPR via a central peripheral road, all of which is expected to ease NH-8 traffic.
The stretch between Ghata and Sohna Road is already built. However, as in case of Dwarka Expressway (NPR), seeking fair compensation, residents of Fazilpur whose homes are along the alignment of the SPR had also approached the Punjab and Haryana high court over acquisition of their land.
It was then decided that a 100m-stretch of the road will pass through Fazilpur, for which 20-odd homes will need to be relocated. Once HUDA acquires this land, it will also be able to build water supply lines to sectors 68-80, where for long, water has been supplied through water tankers as the Authority had failed to get permit to lay a pipeline through Fazilpur.
According to administrator Anita Yadav, HUDA is already working on the relocation plans. “Those affected by the SPR will get alternate plots. Our team will soon do a survey of Sector 37 to prepare a layout plan and demarcate the alternate plots,” she said.
Fazilpur village sarpanch Rambir, though, said they have asked HUDA to allot them alternate plots along the SPR itself and not in Sector 37D, as it falls on the other side of the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway. “Those whose homes will be displaced are not in favor of moving away from Fazilpur. Hence, we’ve asked HUDA to consider allotting us vacant plots in HUDA sectors along SPR itself,” he said.
