Union transport minister and city MP Nitin Gadkari on Saturday asked the Nagpur Smart and Sustainable City Development Corporation Limited (NSSCDCL) to give proper compensation to project-affected people (PAPs) under the Smart City area in east Nagpur.
Gadkari on Saturday evening convened a review meeting of NSSCDCL, which was attended by mayor Dayashankar Tiwari, municipal commissioner Radhakrishnan B, Smart City CEO Buvneshwari S, MLAs Krishna Khopde, Mohan Mate, MLC Pravin Datke and collector Ravindra Thakare among others.
The Union minister expressed concern over slow progress of works.
NSSCDCL is implementing several projects under the Smart City Mission, which included Rs 650 crore tenderSure and Rs 220 crore Home Sweet Home.
The meeting discussed that NSSCDCL work is going on at a snail’s pace in various proposed projects. “On ground zero, there is only 20% work progress in the last so many years,” Khopde told Gadkari.
NSSCDCL officials informed the Union minister that residents are citing inadequate compensation for not parting with their land for Smart City projects. They also claimed not having enough funds for granting compensation to the PAPs.
Gadkari said if people are unhappy with the compensation amount, then the NSSCDCL and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) should give transfer of development rights (TDR) to such PAPs.
The minister directed Nagpur Improvement Trust chairman Manoj Kumar Suryawanshi to hand over its land in east Nagpur to the NSSCDCL so that rehabilitation of PAPs can be started.
He asked NSSCDCL to include construction of internal roads under area-based development of 1,730 acre land in Punapur, Pardi and Bharatwada in east Nagpur. Over NSSDCL citing shortage of funds, Gadkari asked officials to decrease the thickness of existing road projects there and to utilize the amount saved for constructing internal roads.
