“It is a big development. All stakeholders involved, have worked really hard for this. The administration will continue to ensure that the necessary proceedings hereon, are completed on time and the work on the airport begins as scheduled,” district magistrate Brajesh Narain Singh said. With the notification issued, the district administration will now take up detailed survey on the land and two months’ time would be given to anyone having any objection, with regard to the acquisition, administration officials said.

“The governor is also pleased to authorise the collector, district Gautam Buddh Nagar, for the purpose of land acquisition, to take necessary steps to enter upon, conduct survey of land, take levels of any land, dig or bore into the sub-soil and do all other acts as required, for the proper execution of work as provided and specified under Section 12 of the Act,” the letter stated. It also stated that without prior approval of the district collector, no person shall make any transaction or cause any transaction of land — sale or purchase – specified in the notification or create any encumbrances from the date of notification till land acquisitions are completed.

About 6.2 hectares of land has been earmarked from Banwariwas village, 395 hectares from Dayanatpur, 171.1 hectares from Kishorpur, 108.4 hectares from Parohi, 124.9 hectares from Ranhera and 433.1 hectares from Rohi, the letter detailed. A social impact assessment (SIA) study was carried out for the project by the Gautam Buddh University, which had submitted its recommendations to the state government. The SIA recommendations were approved by the government on October 10, 2018.

According to the SIA report, 5,905 families will be impacted by the project and out of these 5,007 are farmers’ families, while 898 are landless families. During the first phase, 1,775 families are likely to be displaced, it added. Some landowners, including farmers and villagers, had initially resisted the land acquisition, citing various reasons such as ‘inadequate’ compensation amount and related benefits, besides the resettlement policy. Around 72 per cent of the total families had given their consent for the project by mid-October, fulfilling the requisite legalities of at least 70 per cent consent for carrying out any such acquisition under the Land Acquisition and Rehabilitation Act, the administration had said.
