Displaced farmers to be compensated

The Times of India News Service

RAJKOT: Officials of the Rajkot Municipal Corporation have agreed to compensate farmers affected by the Lapasari water supply project.

It was learnt that land of some of the farmers would be submerged as a result of the Lapasari water supply expansion project.

Sources pointed out that those who would totally lose their land would be paid Rs 1.35 lakh per acre, while some of the farmers whose land would partially be submerged would be paid Rs 1 lakh. Others would be paid Rs 60,000 per acre.

Officials including the Mayor, the deputy mayor, the standing committee chairman and the municipal commissioner held a meeting with about 22 farmers who would be affected by the project. It was said that the compensation money would be paid within two months.

Meanwhile, plans are afoot to start the Lapasari work as early as possible so that it could be used to store water during the coming monsoon.
