JDA Jaipur Housing Scheme At Ninder Would Be Biggest Housing Scheme
The biggest housing scheme in the history of Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) will be launched soon at Ninder village situated on Jaipur-Sikar Highway. The civic body has planned to develop 3,000 plots of different sizes on approximately 1,350 bighas.
As per preliminary estimation, the JDA would fix Rs 16,000 per square metre as reserve price. However, the actual price will be fixed by the finance department. The proposal has been forwarded for the same. The scheme is expected to be launched by February end.
Along with Ninder, the JDA is planning to develop one more scheme at Ajmer road, near Bagru toll plaza. The planning of the scheme is underway. Both the schemes will give financial boost to the cash-strapped JDA whose coffers are almost dry.
Though, the JDA has planned to launch the housing scheme at Ninder, the deadlock between farmers and civic body remains over the land acquisition. Ninder farmers, who had recently ‘called off’ their protest after receiving assurance from the government, alleged that the authorities had breached the contract. The survey was not conducted by the state government and they are forcefully acquiring our lands, farmer said.
Farmers alleged that majority of JDA’s housing schemes developed in past 10 years were still lying vacant and, yet, it was bent upon developing a new scheme, that too by uprooting the farmers and snatching away their means of livelihood. The civic body is developing a housing project without its utility after taking expensive land from the farmers.
The government should acquire land of farmers as per the new Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act. It’s clearly mentioned, that government cannot acquire land, if consent from 80% farmers is not given. Also, government is not providing any compensation to the farmers, added a protester.
