Delayed land compensation dominates Master Plan meet- The New Indian Express

Lashing out at the civic agency for not paying compensation to farmers whose lands were acquired for the Peripheral Ring Road project, P Nagaraj, ex-chairman of Kogilu Gram Panchayat, said, “Many of them are today living in abject poverty. Farmers are unable to marry off their daughters as BDA has not given them any money.” Sharing his personal experience, Nagaraj said that 3.5 acres of his land were taken away by BDA in connection with the notification issued for the PRR project in 2004. “It is 12 years now. I must be given Rs 17.5 crores and I have not got a single rupee so far.”The leader of the Yelahanka unit of the Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha B G Nanjundappa seconded him and demanded speedy compensation to farmers whose lands were taken away for the PRR project.However, the No Objection Certificates have not yet been issued to the landowners by the BDA.
